So we visited the glorious Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is the 6th or the 7th time I've visited there during the past two and a half years. Its just an amazing place. I love going there, each time. There are new things to see each time I go there and never get tired of looking at paintings, sculptures and various artifacts.
We spent a lot of time in the Egyptian section this visit. Over 4000 years old, its amazing how they must have created all those amazing structures. For a long time it was speculated that huge armies of slaves built the pyramids and the great temples. Archeologists and experts now say these workers who built these great structures were skilled craftsmen who voluntarily worked at these sites. Looking at the artifacts at the MET, I am not surprised if all the workers who built them are skilled and trained craftsmen.
Then we went over to the Greek and Roman Section. Its almost retrocognetive...

On Friday we visited the Rockefeller center observation deck. The panoramic view of New York city is quite amazing.
Then I showed the Times Square to my parents.
We walked to the Grand Central from there, my favorite building in New York. I have an entire post about Grand Central - read it here.
