Little known fact
On every trip to Big City Like No Other, I go to Ridiculously Huge Art Museum. Usually, I get lost almost right away and just wander about happily, stumbling upon whole sections I've never seen before. Mostly, I don't bother with the floor map, preferring instead to think of myself as an explorer. On this trip, though, I was with my parents.
My mother kept looking at the museum floor map and finding stuff she wanted to see, mostly artwork on the very other side of the building. Then after we'd looked at about twelve rooms of art from one period, she'd point to something on the map on the very other side of the building. That means that we walked miles and miles, crisscrossing the whole museum, making our way through art from every continent. Just as I was about to collapse from exhaustion, I discovered something even more exciting than another group of paintings or set of statues: the cafeteria in the basement serves great vegetarian food.
