I spent my first weekend without Katerina and it was not complete without her. It’s one thing to go to interesting places and see really cool things, but it isn’t the same without sharing it with her. I value the time I have with myself to collect thoughts and sort out the work experience, but I forgot how lonely it can be without my wife. I miss her and experiencing New York without her is difficult, but not impossible. After all, we both have computers with cameras and communicating every night makes it easier.
So I decided to spend my Saturday at the American Museum of Natural History, located just on the skirts of Central Park. It is an amazing museum and loaded with interesting exhibits and displays. However, having been to several similar museums, they start looking the same. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it, but a dinosaur looks the same in any building. Also, I didn’t have the patience to read every bit of information, so I probably didn’t absorb the full experience of the museum.
Plenty of stuffed animals and bones everywhere! I spent the most time in the primates exhibit. There’s something fascinating about observing our primitive ancestors. Curious George was on display and I loved his pondering pose. Do you think this is what he was doing right before they decided to use him for a museum exhibit?
