Hola--The Metropolitan Museum of New York--
I am going to go museum hopping in NY, and you can too--with just the click of a mouse, no train fare, no bus fare, no plane fare, no expensive hotels or cheap digs.
Here is one of my all time favorite places in the world--sorry, but I like it a lot better than the Shwedagone in Burma, even if it represents Western materialism and acquisitiveness.

is like getting an MFA Master of Fine Arts, in art history, and I highly recommend it--esp. if you are going to make a living as a working artist, a gallery owner, a curator or an art critic.
As MFA degrees usually cost at least 10 grand a year in tuition alone, think how much you are saving.
At the very least you will learn to pronounce names like Ingres correctly.
These days there is no excuse to be ignorant and uncultivated, unless you make yourself so.
So I will post a lot less, but I will require you to "follow me" in much greater depth.
Also, I just saw that they have statues of the female pharaoh Hatepshut, about whom I might one day write a novel, and that gives me a good excuse to go to Manhatten and the Met again, sometime next spring or summer.
good night or good morning.
