After meeting our friends, we'd hardly walked anywhere when we saw the Pera Museum, and they were having a Diego Rivera/Frida Kahlo exhibit. Wow! What an opportunity. We got to see work that we'd seen only in books.
We also saw work from their permanent collection and some really fine ceramics. How about these two mugs? I'd like them in my kitchen.
After the Pera Museum, Kemal led us down to the space that houses The Association of Cartoonists where we saw an exhibit of political cartoons (very good, very thought provoking, and amusing) and the winners of this contest. Work from around the world depicting this character, with me and Katerina.
This is the view from the restaurant at the top of the Hotel Richmond (of course we had to go there!) What a view. On this cloudy day, all of the buildings were like a painted backdrop. The view was pretty spectacular, the setting very contemporary, the food was good, but the company was the best.
