The Metropolitan Museum of Art

I recently spent a few days in The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

I was camping at the Great Hall when one of the security guards asked me to leave, they had to kick me out of it. Ok, it didn’t happened that way. But it actually took me 3 days to see the entire museum.

It’s so inspiring to be surrounded by an immense collection of art.
I finally got the motivation I needed to pick up my brushes, dust my easel and start painting again.

There’s something for everyone at The Met, with a collection of more than two million works of art.
Thousands years of world culture, from prehistory to present days and from every part of the globe. You could immerse yourself in whatever interest you.

The Met is located in New York City’s Central Park along Fifth Avenue (from 80th to 84th Streets).
It’s very easy to find it. I walked from 59th street, the first day, to get there, just to warm up my calves and take some pictures of Central Park.

The visitors desk offers maps, tours, brochures, and assistance in many languages, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.

There are also restaurants, a bookshop, gift shops and even bars.
I tried the cafeteria’s food, it was very good and affordable.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit New York City, stop by The Metropolitan Museum.
Just make sure to check the museum hours before showing up.

Also, wear comfy shoes.

Get ready for hours of history.

And even good food.

Mr. Runway

This chubby, bubbly fellow looks healthy, mmmhh, turkey for dinner anyone?

Look at this corpulent guy! He’s ready to head into the oven.


The pictures were taken in a small village in Veracruz, Mexico.
While waiting for our sugarcane juice to be made. Mr. Turkey came walking and passed right in front of us, modeling his feathers, like if he was part of an exclusive Christian Dior’s runway.

I could think of many recipes including Mr. Runway: Turkey sandwich, turkey with portobello mushrooms, turkey casserole, roast turkey, turkey meatballs.

Oh, oohh, is he reading my mind?

He got my vibe and walked away.
