Mi querida familia me visita de México, y cuando vienen los parientes, hay que pasearlos.
On Sunday afternoon we had a magnificent visit to the Getty Center in Los Angeles. High above the 405 freeway, nestled on a hill overlooking LA from downtown to the Pacific Ocean, it’s the sort of place that really makes you appreciate living in Los Angeles.
If you have some free time this summer and are looking for a nice place to take the kids (or a date!) then this is highly recommended. There’s beautiful gardens, wide open spaces, and great architecture.
Of course, there’s always the artwork to admire. We had a chance to look at lovely photographs by Walker Evans (circa 1933 in Havana) and other photographers in the “Cuba” exhibit, a very powerful set of images with a lot of history and cultural perspective. No se la pierdan.
But get there early! The Getty closes at 5:30pm.
