We went to Cleveland today, Renee and I, taking my Russian ESL student along with us. It's not a bad drive–about 2 1/2 hours. I've been wanting to go to the Westside Market since I read about it in Kathryn's blog. We were hugely disappointed to find the market closed on Tuesday.
Our second destination was the art museum. Google directions took us on secondary roads across downtown Cleveland and about eight miles east, the slow way. We finally got there and had a somewhat nondescript lunch at the botanical garden across the street from the museum. Then on to the Gauguin show. What did I like best? A beautiful van Gogh drawing and a Kuniyoshi print. I know this sounds a little down, but we really had a good time, talking, laughing, looking at the city.
