Richmond in heat

Posted by on Sep 4, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments
After arriving in virginia late Saturday and a lazy Sunday, aside from a spot of gardening in the morning, today was labour day in the U S of A. Commemorating the signing of labour laws, but now a good excuse for a Monday off work and traditionally a big BBQ day.
My parents aren’t really the outside grill sort unfortunately, but we did pay a visit to the virginia museum of fine art. I always enjoy dropping in – it’s housed in a fantastic building in the heart of what’s known as the historic district of town, full of colonial style houses, adorned with ornate iron work on each veranda.

The permenant collection is a solid one, and today we spent some time in the Indian artifacts galleries. The statues of Shiva in various avatar guises and a Tibetan skull rattle were especially fun.
