Charna came here from New Jersey yesterday and we went back to the Met. She and Renee went to Barcelona while I walked back to Japan. There was a large screen I wanted to study depicting battles over Kyoto from 1159. After lunch we all looked at the Tiffany show. The museum was even more crowded than on Wednesday, but both Japan and Tiffany weren’t too bad.
In the evening we went to opening night of "The Pirate Queen." It was OK; Riverdance meets les Miz light, with special effects. But I wonder about the meaning of opening night. After a month of previews, it doesn’t seem to be very special. We went because it was a convenient night for us, not because it was opening night. I suppose it just means that’s when the reviewers come.
Back to Pittsburgh and real life this afternoon.
