Eating the ice cream we made with liquid nitrogen at Berkeley, on the balcony in LeConte Hall. It tasted pretty good! I added M&Ms, Snickers, and Oreo cookies!


Romy 9.29.2010

I am making ice cream by mixing cream, sugar, and chocolate syrup together and putting scoops of liquid nitrogen in it to instantly freeze it! The cold fog is the liquid nitrogen.

Today was so hot, we decided to go to the beach instead of staying at school this afternoon. It got into the 90s, so we headed to Stinson Beach, which is north of San Francisco by Muir Woods and Mt Tam. I actually went swimming!


Jenn 9.27.2010

This morning we took a short walk in the Oakland hills on a random fire trail. We didn't know the name of the trail, but it was near Sibley.

About to watch Weeds!


Jenn 09.21.2010

Me relaxing on the couch. We tried taking a HDR picture, where you combine three pictures into one: an under-exposed shot, an over-exposed shot, and a normally exposed shot. The effect looks better in landscape photos where there is a lot of detail in the shadows, but we tried it one me first!
