Finally Friday - Pittsburgh Patter

More from our May road trip.  Pittsburgh proved to be an interesting  small city. We enjoyed the Carnegie Science Center. A million kids were there since it was end of school year trip time.  Excited voices rang through the halls. We enjoyed the planetarium show, and they had a really cool miniature train  set up in a history section. 
We toured the USS Requin - a WWII submarine. Always interesting. Hard to fathom being on  duty in  that  tube and under the duress of war. 
A special robot  exhibit had  the  Mystery Science Theater  robots. (Shout out to Alex Cavanaugh)
In between  science exhibits, we strolled over  for  a noon  tour of Heinz  Field - the home of the  Pittsburgh Steelers and also the  University of Pittsburgh Panthers. All football!

 The Steelers locker room was pretty bare bone compared to Dallas Cowboys at Jerry World. 

More on Pittsburgh Monday - it was  quite a nice surprise - pretty along  the river and lots of character from old  bridges.
