Be a Tourist!
I’ve been in a limbo lately with idleness…well, not really. The days are getting more beautiful but I’ve been inside most of the times, it seems, because I was playing Tales of Vesperia or shopping on Etsy. So I made it a goal to get outside yesterday and enjoy some sunshine.
Shawn and I went outside and started walking towards the river. Then we decided to go to the Mendel Art Gallery to check out some exhibits and pay a visit to the Museo cafe, which was highly recommended on some online page I cannot remember. When you think you’ve seen it all and done it all, it’s good to think like a tourist and revisit places of interest!
The Mendel has a plant conservatory that is small in size but cute. There are lots of tropical plants and a little fountain. I found a (non-commercial) cotton plant with real cotton!
There wasn’t anything terribly exciting at the exhibits…just some paintings and an installment where you can listen to someone recounting their dreams and a whistling above that. I was more interested in the Museo cafe, where we shared a beautiful cup of hot chocolate and a warm cinnamon bun.
The baristos (?) were brewing coffees to order individually, just as I saw in Coffee Prince (a Korean comedy drama series). I would like to stop by here again in a few months for a nice cup of coffee!
