At the MET!
I got to the MET a little before they opened their doors at 9:30. There were many international tourists. I marched (more or less) to the exhibit on loan from Afghanistan -- it seemed less about the artifacts and more about the process of preserving antiquities (especially in war-torn countries). The cylinder sundial was probably the most interesting part of the exhibit, followed by a bronze water-toy -- a submerged disk with bobbing fish fins and tails to make a kind of "swimming" sculpture.
More later once I catch some more sleep...
