New York, NY. December, 2016

On a recent trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I happened by accident upon this, the Temple of Dendur. (I had been looking for the Anna Wintour Costume Institute, truth be told.) Whoa! Situated in a wide open wing of its own, the reconstruction is surrounded by a reflecting pool (into which people had tossed coins --why do they do that?) that only serves to make the spectacle even more impressive. I'm told that the space is rented out for private events. I'd like to mention that I have a significant birthday coming up in a couple of years.
