The Jack Stauffacher exxhibit, part of the SFMOMA's permanent collection is really gorgeous. If you're a fan of typography, or Russian constructivist-era art, then I'd highly recommend checking it out.
How could I have missed this?

Although not a huge fan of their music, one must give Detroit's White Stripes due props for their completely brilliant Fell In Love With A Girl video, done completely with stop animation and Legos. Awesome.
After a day of rain and the startling realization that our beachfront location wasn't as appealing in the midst of a downpour, and, in the absence of any extraneous creature-comforts (in the name of total relaxation and being unplugged - all well and good if you've got sun, sand and surf), there really wasn't a whole lot to do at Hotel Las Palapas, we decided to move our accommodations into town. We landed at the well executed Hotel Deseo, a beautiful oasis of good design and modernism awash in a sea of overpriced hammocks and badly cast pottery swathed in lead-tainted paint. Other than being just a bit to self-aware of it's uber-hip status, Hotel Deseo was a comfortable dream. I'd recommend it, and stay there again in a heartbeat.
Please. Think of the kittens.

Palaya del Carmen is unbelievably beautiful, and the accommodations at
Hotel Las Palapas couldn't be better. I expect to be one tan robot by the time I return. Until then...bueños dias y hasta luego.
