The Maharaja exhibit was amazing! All the robes and jewelry that the royalty of India wore; I’m talking diamonds, rubies, emeralds, pearls, silver, gold…and all the hookahs and spice jars and games they played. The exhibit also showcased the decoration and adornments of the elephants for when they were decorated for processions and ceremonial events. I highly recommend this exhibition. It’s only $12 for students and $17 for adults to see the Maharaja exhibit as well as the rest of the museum and you get the audio for free!
I’ve just recently become interested in more contemporary Indian and Asian art from the Contemporary Asian Art class that I took last semester and Sanjay Patel’s animations of the Hindu gods are sa-weeet! I’m tellin ya they are so cool! I bought the poster book of them and have been showing my friends and looking through it non-stop! Here’s what it looks like:
So, after the Museum, my friend Makiko and I met up with Kyle and took muni to the Castro for Happy Hour! First we went to this club/bar called the Lookout. We sat outside, upstairs and had a great view of the Castro Streets below us. We got Margaritas and Chips and guac there and after headed to Harvey’s and once there Makiko and I ordered pear ciders and Kyle got a Bloody Mary. I was starving by this point and I ordered a Chicken Tostada, which was amazing and my friends took the liberty of devouring it with me. 🙂 On our way back to the Muni station we got cookies at HOT COOKIE. best snickerdoodle ever!
