Last day in Boulder

I had some time Sunday June 21, 2004 before my shuttle left for Denver and my Frontier Airlines flight home There were many things I wanted to do but my time was to short for most of them so I returned to the Pearl Street Mall to pickup my final souvenirs. I had gone down to the Mall on Wednesday Jun 16, 2004 while I waited for my room to be ready at the millennium Harvest House. I'm not usually much of a mall shopper but this place is different. Many unique shops are peppered along this pedestrian mall, giving the space the feel of an outdoor market. On Wednesday I didn't take pictures since it was raining steadily the entire time I was there. Had enough to do to juggle my purse, shopping bag, and cane.

I started out my walk by having an excellent lunch at Hapa Sushi Grill & Sakie Bar, their menu is a fusion of asian and hawaiian cuisines and the sushi was excellent. I sat on the patio and enjoyed the view of the mall while I waited for my food. It was a beautiful sunny day just like the ones you expect in Colorado where the sun shines roughly 300 days out of the year.

I then walked down to a store where I had ordered a couple of t-shirts for me and hubby. Mine says "If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?" - Albert Einstein. I got a really large roomy version since I will probably start living in the t-shirt for the duration of quals and diss. I thought this was the perfect quote for those days in a long project where faith wavers. Hubby's says "Hell, there are no rules here-- we're trying to accomplish something." - Thomas A. Edison. Wish I could remember the name of the store - they don't currently have a web presence - Science something or Scientific something. *sigh* Cool store.

So I snapped various pictures as I walked, sorry these are in no specific order. Have to admit I was just soaking up the rays and snappin' pics.

I stopped to listen to some great music from the local buskers. In particular I was intrigued by the sound of this husband and wife duo. The drum on the left of the picture, it looks like a captive flying saucer, is called a "Hang" Steel Drum (pronounced Haaaang). The sound was heavenly and it looked so easy and restful to play, I think I want one of these to play myself.

The players were Eileen and Per Hunltquist both play the Hang and the didjeridu. You can see them playing didjeridus in the picture on the right. They are performing what they call "brain message". The idea is a volunteer puts on the headphones, seen in the picture on the left. The headphones are hooked up to funnels via flexible tubing. By playing the didjeridu's and moving them in figure 8's in front of the funnels a holographic sound is heard via the headphones. This is what the Hultquist's call a brain message. I liked the sounds I heard in the open air of Pearl Street so I bought their CD. I plan on MP3ing it for use on my iPod. I expect that the music might be nice for napping on planes. If you are interested in the Hultquist's and their musical work check out their homepage.
