We visited Pittsburgh for two day.  It is such a lovely place.

Today we went to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.  There were so  many exotic flowers and plants I have never seen before.  The conservatory is located right next to Carnegie Mellon University, which is right next to the University of Pittsburgh.  We also went on the highest floor in the Cathedral of Learning where we had a overhead view of the city.

National aviary is another attraction we went to.  We saw African penguin  there.  They stayed actually outdoor.  I thought penguins can only survive in cold weather.  No wonder they are African penguins.  Meeting with the laughing kookaburr was one of the best things today.  Here is the video:

We did not have time to go to the History Center but I went to the Mattress Art Museum where we thought it would be boring.  Actually it turned out to be a fun place.  Escpecially where the rooms are extremely dark and right after a turn, you will see some projections on the wall which produce some 3D effect.

We drove to the Mount Washington several times but still need to go there tomorrow morning before we leave the city to buy a fridge magnet as a souvenir.  Mountains and rivers, two elements make Pittsburgh such a lovely city.
