In June we took advantage of living on the east coast and took a bus to NYC for the weekend. We met up with our friends, Mike and Dar, who were completing their round-the-world trip! The last time we had seen them was at their send off party in San Diego, which was coincidentally also the weekend we started our Epic Trip.
We spent the evening catching up with them on their travels and decided to meet the next morning at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The museum has some interesting exhibits beyond the traditional paintings and sculptures.
Mike got a couple chuckles from other onlookers
In addition to the weapons and armor exhibit we checked out the musical instruments. We wished there was an audio component to the exhibit though, it seemed such a shame to see so many beautiful and unique instruments but not get to hear what they sound like.
As we were walking out, the classic painting of George Washington Crossing the Delaware caught our eye. A fitting painting to end our visit.
We took a quick stroll through Central Park before parting ways.
And in the end, Nathan still hasn’t had a burger from Shake Shack… maybe next time? [a bit of an inside joke…]
