Differences #8

Art museums.

So I haven’t written in awhile… there were some complications…anyway we just got back from a trip to Vienna. Beautiful city. We went to Albertina, an art museum that had a Picasso exhibition. Believe it or not guys, there were school children between the ages of 10-13 on what appeared to be a school field trip at the exhibit. And everyone acted as it was completely normal to have young children in the presence of either naked or scantly clothed and badly drawn females. And I cant tell you how many times I read the word eroticism in a description below one of his paintings. I mean, I felt myself getting turned on. Just think of the children!!!! It’s an outrage! In America, if a teacher brought her under age class to an art museum, she would be fired from her job!

It's good to have you back. I hope the complications have become less complicated... I wish that I lived in a place where it wasn't an outrage to bring 10 - 13 year olds to a museum. Hope you had fun in Vienna (I've always wanted to go there).

Lisa, this is Jamaal. It was so nice to see you this week at the office. Your difference series is amazing. I'm going to add a link on my blog to yours.

I agree with rjvon. I was shocked to see that the teacher was fired. So much for being open-minded.

Perhaps I'll see you again before you head back to Germany.

Yes and us who moved to US after some 27 years of Czech Republic experience find it interesting that people would not swim freely on any pond here around Boston in summer not even talking about seeing topless women which is becoming quite normal in Europe. Oh... have you ever thought about mixes sauna being common? ;)
