It looks like Spring is finally in its way here in NYC! The weather is getting warmer and as there are so many things to do in the city, my friend Marina and I decided to go to the Guggenheim Museum last Saturday. That Saturday, the museum had for a couple of hours the “Pay what you want” ticket fee, so that made it a good opportunity to see the Museum on a tight budget. As this fare was not valid until 4pm, we had lunch in a very nice and affordable japanese restaurant called Sushi&Bento near Times Square.
After that, we headed to the Guggenheim Museum. While crossing Central Park we noticed that some of the trees had already bloomed and they looked just beautiful. When we got to the Guggenheim, the queue was so big and so slow that we lost our hope and so we made a change of plans and decided to go to the MET instead. The MET is an amazing museum! You can find art from Egypt to Japan to Native American. You name it! It reminded me a bit of the MAN in Madrid in the type of art and variation. One funny fact is that they have an egyptian temple that has a close resemblance to the Debod Temple in Madrid.
NYC surprises me every time I go and visiting the city and get to see its people, the dynamics and urban environment, is certainly a Museum in itself.
