On the 15th of August, 2013, some EC students and I went to the California Academy of Sciences Nightlife event, which is one of the most famous places in San Francisco. There is an aquarium, a planetarium, a natural history museum, a rain forest, and so on. Usually it closes at 5:00 pm, but during the summer months, it stays open late on Thursdays from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. People who are over 21 can experience a different atmosphere from the normal daytime hours.
First, we experienced the earthquake simulator and learned about the history of San Francisco. Most of us had never had any experience feeling the shaking of an earthquake, so some of us were very surprised about it and realized how important our lives are. After that, we went to the aquarium and saw many different kinds of fish! It was very beautiful and mysterious so we were extremely impressed! Our minds were blown!
Before we went there, we hadn’t known each other at all, but thanks to this opportunity, we became good friends. We deepened our bond and it was a precious experience for us.
