#Metfest Chinese New Year festival at the Metropolitan Museum
Went to the Chinese New Year festival at the Met. What an eerie experience to listen to two Tibetan musicians sing and play songs such as “O, crane, I wish I had your wings to fly back home” (home was a name of a town I couldn’t catch).
The song, the chanteuse said, was about reincarnation. And there we are, in the great hall, surrounded by medieval tapestries and statues of the saints. Resurrection and reincarnation. Dreamlike.

Glad you enjoyed it. Not disappointing like the Madison Ave. celebration which was poorly organized.

I must say it wasn’t well-organized. They needed you! 🙂

You’re right. What a mess. They needed YOU.

Was! But I hope they don’t start doing too many. Love the Met and want to keep it’s ambiance.
