Friday saw Grand Central Station, United Nations, then to the Frick museum on 71st, On to MOMA where the crowds were ferocious. Finally headed to the Whitney around 13th St. On the way stopped at the Gonzo bar for drinks and a couple of empanadas for sustenance Only 32,118 steps for the day, 16 miles.
Saturday was the Museum of Arts and Design, lunch at
Ousia restaurant, Mediterranean wines

where the sommelier was a friend of the winner of the Uncorked series and helped us choose a white wine. Life is great.walked thru Central Park, then to the Jewish Museum, tried for the Guggenheim but the lines stretched around 3/4s of the block. We decided that was it for the day since we needed to get up to Hyde Park yet that night. Only 19,950 steps.
Sunday, the FDR museum and house. 11.5 hours of driving back to Michigan, had to hand off the last hour of driving to my friend.
After that was a flight to Albuquerque, drive to Santa Fe for a couple of days. Saw the Georgia O'Keefe museum, she was way ahead of her time. Had a wonderful dinner at Izanami
where we learned that sake that is hot is served that way to disguise the flavor since it is really cheap sake. I'm really liking the cloudy unfiltered sake. Will have to look up the benefits of this type of alcohol.
