New York Part II: The Met
The Metropolitan Museum of Art. You could spend days here, get lost amongst the Pollocks and the Hoppers, the Modiglianis and the O'Keeffes. Samurai armour, Ringo's gold drum, Tiffany stained glass, ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. We only spent an afternoon, though I have in the past visited on an A-Level art trip, but still, just the tip of the iceberg. Gutted that we missed the Alexander McQueen retrospective, Savage Beauty, by just a few weeks.
