on friday we went to the metropolitan museum of art (the met) to spend the afternoon. it seems that a lot of other people had that idea as well. the lobby and coat check were totally jam packed, but the exhibits weren't too crowded. one interesting item to note about the met- the entry fee posted is the "suggested admission" - you can actually pay what you would like. all of the permanent collections here are really interesting. i also really enjoyed some of the photography special exhibitions. zach enjoyed having some time to sketch.
the photo below is in the egyptian wing.
these statues i think are from cyprus. they are some of the few that still have noses!
