And and Rand Take Manhattan Day 2

Here’s Day 2 in photos! Can I tell you I was freaking exhausted I was at the end of the day? It was The Hispanic Society Museum, then taking the subway all the way down to the tip of Manhattan to the Cloisters, then bussing it back to the Neue Gallery (no photos of that as they aren’t allowed!) then hopping over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Exhausting, but in a brilliant and inspired way!

Enjoy!
