Museums

There are a lot of Museums in New York.  We decided to only go to two of them, the Natural History Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Both were good, but the Met was definitely my favourite – we saw the Greek and Roman statues (how did they manage to carve marble so it looked like draped fabric?), the European paintings, and an Egyptian temple, the temple of Dendur.  And other things, but those are the major ones.  Although the Natural History Museum did have dinosaurs, so that was pretty great, and lots of the fossils they had were actually discovered in Alberta.

We conquered the subway to get to the Natural History Museum, and to get from one Museum to the other, we walked through Central Park.  I imagine it is a very pretty place when the trees are all green, and such, but it was quite pretty now in winter too.

About Kathy

I'm a twenty-something who loves animals, farming, photography and cooking/baking. Luckily enough, photography works really well with the other three subjects, so I carry my camera around practically everywhere. Other than that, my life is pretty uneventful.
