A few days after we went to several food markets, my sister and I went to both the Metropolitan Museum and Times Square.
The Metropolitan is one of the largest (if not the largest) museum that holds antiques in one place. Artifacts, art and priceless relics from various civilizations and times make up this HUGE museum. It takes up an entire city block, and could probably take a whole day to see all of it (I've never been able to visit all of the exhibits in one visit, there is definitely A LOT of walking involved!)
Here are some highlights:
Hatshepsut the Pharaoh Queen
The temple of Dendur--a temple accredited to Cleopatra.
The whole temple is INSIDE the building!
Ancient Indian Civilization
There's my sister, again!
Here is a whole courtyard of Nouveau American Sculpture!
And that was a fraction of what you would see if you went!
The day after the museum excursion, we went to Times Square--the heart of Broadway!
Actually, I think much of it is an advertiser's dream--huge electrified signs...not unlike Vegas, or a big crazy circus:
Here is the tower from which the New Year's Ball is dropped every year! Very different during the daytime, no?
The Hard Rock Cafe:
More crazy lights....
These next two pics illustrate the difference between my sister and I...
Who do you think was the straight A, top 10 grade point average bookworm?
Or the ultra flamboyant performing arts student? I know, it's hard to tell which is which, right?
Anyhow, after that, it was a trip to a bakery shop for hip-inducing food and fun! And that, my friends is the story of our Thanksgiving mayhem!
