Metropolitan Museum of Art.

I went to the Met today. By myself. First I went to the Greek Art exibit. WOW! I LOVE greek art so much. There is something so beautiful about the forms of the art. It took me a while to find the somewhat raunchy stuff, but it was there. I love the way that museums always try to not say what is really happening on the pot.

I also went to the Arms and Armory exibit. I love the armor and the swords and all of that kind of stuff. But I did feel a little weird walking through the mediveal art section wearing my "Black Death Euopean Tour" tee shirt. I really missed Aerith. I wish that he could have been there to look at everything with me. He probably would have been bored with the greek art, but he would have liked the armor and swords and old guns and stuff.

I bought a book of ancient greece that has pictures of the ruins and then a layover to give you an idea of what it might have looked like. I almost bought an Ancient Wolrd cookbook, but then I remembered that I really don't have room in my backpack anyway.

I love the museum. I really would love to work there for a little while, espcially in the greek section. I got a postcard of a meanad. :)

I miss Aerith. I wish he was here. I guess he'll have to come with me some other time.
