Living in one of the greatest and certainly most condensed cities in the world has its perks. Decent mass transit options (waaaay better than Los Angeles), a wide variety of food (gourmet for days) and not to mention the vast amount of art and culture found in various museums and street corners. Well, last Friday I met up with a couple of friends and we decided to go wander the Met. Now how’s that for a young adult outing? Quite fancy and sophisticated, I know.
Many thanks to my work badge for comping the entrance fee. This means I can just pop in as often as I please without breaking the bank. To be honest, I haven’t taken advantage of this and have only been to the Met two or three times in my life – once with my family about 10 or so years ago sooooo I better get on that. Anyways, while I was able to enter “for free” it’s always nice to submit a donation, just so we can ensure these gorgeous works of art are around for years to come.
^^ a little replica or take on Granada’s Alhambra (which actually does look a little like this)
^^Alcazaba in Granada, Spain
^^ One of the current exhibitions – China Through the Looking Glass
^^ We happened to stumble upon free drawing sessions at 6:30 so of course we partook. I used to take art class once a week and absolutely loved it. It’s been ages since I’ve had that outlet and after sitting for a mere 30 minutes, I realized how soothing and relaxing art can be!
^^ Next stop, the Met Rooftop (a touristy place but with such a great view)
^^ Aqueduct (because when at the Met…)
