Wuppertal!


Wuppertal -- it's not a town. It's actually 5 towns in a valley (of the Wupper river), connected by a monorail. What brought me to this pentagonal industrial wasteland? An art exhibit. Wuppertal actually has a fairly good art museum for a town (well, collection of towns) of 250,000 people. And they had a Renoir exhibit with a decent collection.


This is one of the galleries. I just like the picture.


A rather huge Pollock-esque painting. It's 10 feet or so wide. The paint was a good inch and a half thick off the canvas at points.


Me as part of the art.


After checking out the museum, we headed to a local brewery to sample the food and beer. Both were fabulous -- they had 4 beers on tap, all great, and quite tasty (German) food.

Wow. Your new blog design looks remarkably like on of my all time favorite blogs. What are the odds??

Yeah, i haven't stopped by in a while. I'm not a good friend -- but an excellent acquaintance.
