This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
From Nevada I travelled up to New York. The summer weather in New York was just about perfect, around 21C. I didn't have a lot of time. I arrived in the evening and went for a stroll.
I made sure to go to the Metropolitan museum of art when I was there. It really is an amazing museum, next to Central park.
The Met museum has amazing collections of ancient art works.
Some of it was very old, from places like the 'cradle of civilization', Mesopotamia. I particularly liked the giant, intact pot (right) which was around 5000 years old. There was a fantastic collection of art from ancient Greece, Roman times, horse-men from Assyrian tombs, busts of ancient Greek philosophers.
There was also a great selection of more modern art, including a lot of post impressionist art works by Monet and Van Gogh.
Overall, it is a fantastic museum if you get a chance to travel to New York I recommend a visit.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
