Tours, travels, hikes and journeys!

I love this park. i had visited it before this last year, but only briefly when in town on vacation and usually only going to the zoo. But last summer and fall, I explored it much more and find it quite delightful!

Cool San Diego Sights!

Ancient Egypt inspires much of the vibrant mural. Ancient Egypt inspires much of the vibrant mural.

Folks heading up Park Boulevard beside Balboa Park often turn their heads as they pass the amazing, enormous mural painted on the side of the WorldBeat Cultural Center.

The WorldBeat Cultural Center, based in a former water tower, is a multi-cultural arts organization that promotes and preserves the African and indigenous cultures of the world through music, art, dance, education and technology. The center is also used as a venue for concerts and other special events.

Last Saturday I walked around the structure and took some pics of the huge, colorful mural. It completely spans the outside wall of the cylindrical building.
