|Thanksgiving dinner in Annapolis|
From there we flew down the cold streets to a favorite place of our daughters called "Teaism". After getting over the shock that they didn't serve coffee, (yes I know it's a tea place, but they served hot chocolate, so there should have been coffee) we have large cups of black tea and chocolate cookies.
Then back to the National for an exhibit of small French Impressionist paintings which we loved, loved, loved.
Afterwards we fought through the crowds to visit a really strange exhibit of Guiseppe Arcimboldo's works. They are oil paintings of heads made out of animals, food, plants, books etc. They were incredible, and even more incredible when you realize they were painted in the 1500's. Several had mirrors below them so you could see that upside down they were another painting entirely. All I can say is WOW!
Outside the exhibit was a giant scultpure by Phillip Haas done in homage to Arimboldo's Winter.
Dashing out of the museum we hurried off on the Metro to meet friends we're known in Turkey, our daughter had found us a Moroccan restaurant and the food is very similar to Turkish so it was another feast.
Too soon Sunday morning came and we had to fly home. It was a wonderful visit, can't wait for her to get here for Christmas!
