Day Seven -First Two Weeks of My Eight Months’ Travel

As plan, morning I go to Old Town sightsee some national historical districts and parks. The Old Town San Diego State Historic Park preserves the history of the San Diego area, and recreates life in the Mexican and early American periods of 1821 to 1872. Five original adobes include shops, restaurants and a museum.
I look around and visited some old houses in that particularly preserved historical area. Almost all of them are surrounded by beautiful gardens. Meanwhile I found the restroom there was also designed in old time, somehow even more functional than those modern ones.
Noon time I bought Philly Cheese Steak my favorite sandwich toward to America’s largest urban cultural park Balboa Park, which covers a huge 1,200 acres including fifteen museums.
Firstly I spent a leisure time on Balboa Park’s manicured lawns for my lunch. Sitting among shady groves of majestic trees, nestling within peaceful vistas, I enjoyed a lot.
Then I visited its horticultural treasures – a host of glorious gardens including an award-winning rose garden (Oh, I still remember the alluring fresh sweet smell from those lovely fragile) and a butterfly garden; rare plant species; 58 different varieties of palm trees; and an outstanding Botanical Building housing over 2,000 different tropical plants. It’s so impressive and I cannot help taking ton of pictures.
Walking along Park’s celebrated El Prado walkway, surrounded by all those magnificent Spanish colonial buildings, finally I arrived in San Diego Museum of Man, the city’s only museum devoted to anthropology.
With its Spanish colonial and mission style architecture, the landmark building was originally constructed for the 1915–16 Panama-California Exposition. Today, a key focus of the museum is to create and display dynamic and educational anthropological exhibits about people and places throughout the Americas and around the world. Through it I studied a lot.
Generally, the whole day I spent in this city is quite different.
