A scene I’ve seen played out before in Pasadena…
Tourists, visitors, come worldwide to Pasadena for any number of reasons. Traditionally they came for the weather, their health, and the Tournament of Roses of course. In more recent times they’ve added to their list education, such as Fuller Theological Seminary, one of the top seminaries on this planet.
Cameras at the ready, tourists turned instant models wearing Cal Tech on their background. (A Pasadena Star News writer friend of mine read this but didn’t like my choice of, “wearing.” But even I can’t always please all the people all the time!)
The last three years I’ve noticed a higher number of people who seem to be either tourists, or just new to the city. Whichever, I hope our visitors stay long enuf to respect and learn some of the background of Cal Tech and Pasadena. It’s no longer just all technology, roses, and voluptuous women who can stop a car without even using their thumb!
Have you visited Pasadena as a tourist? Some came for a visit, and stayed for their life. Others planned to stay just a few months or years, then regretted when it was time to leave.
