A compendium of my running interests, and other miscellany that I like.

The Metropolitan Museum
During our recent visit to New York, we spent much time here, only scratching the surface of the utterly vast collection. I loved the impressive Roman facade, it's massive in its scale. A half mile long on fifth avenue, Central Park is immediately behind it. The 19th Century painters, Greco-Roman collection, and the Temple of Dendur were some of my immediate favourites.
