A handful of Makeup Mavens had arrived by Sunday evening and the few of us had decided to visit The American Museum of Natural History on Monday morning because our first meeting didn’t start until 3pm later that day.
We were following the directions on my iphone and were only expecting about a 30 minute walk at the most. Well, with the snow and us Makeup Mavens trying to take NYC in, it took us a little over an hour.
The museum has 32 million specimens and artifacts, which only a fraction can be displayed at any given time. There was so much to see and a TON to take in. They have around 17 different halls/exhibits to see.
We were only able to see a handful of halls but I know an entire day STILL wouldn’t have been long enough!
There was an art class from a local school on a field trip and their assignment was to draw!
This next photo, I thought reminded me a little of my cute dog Guillermo. So, I took the photo. I also took a photo of the explanation of the dog but didn’t have time to read it then.
When I got home, I read the explanation and here’s what it said:
These little dogs were specially fattened, and eaten in Western Mexico and elsewhere. The Indians considered dog meat a great delicacy and savored it. A small dog was also thought to guide a dead person’s soul to his proper place in the after world.
Well, my dog isn’t fat and I’m definitely not going to eat him! Kind of funny though that I didn’t realize the significance of this dog at the museum!
I continually had to find a place to sit down because all of the standing and walking was really hard on my back. Fortunately, the Makeup Mavens that I was with were wonderful and didn’t mind me having to take a break every now and then.
This museum averages 5 million visitors annually! Incredible! I know I will definitely be back!
We thought taking the subway back to our hotel was going to be an adventure and were too tired to walk anyway. Of course, the New Yorkers were laughing at us for taking photos in the subway. But we didn’t care!
Once we got back to our hotel around 1:30, I was able to lay down and rest for a bit. I knew that I wouldn’t enjoy the rest of the day if I didn’t give my back some relief.
Then I got ready and met up with all 59 other makeup mavens . . . Stay tuned for Part Two!
