German collecting

Today we went out to the suburbs to an ethnographic museum. In some ways the native American exhibitions were most interesting, because of the stories of the German collectors who acquired the material. There were some objects even that had been collected by Cook.

The subway system is complicated, with over 10 lines, but once we began to get used to it, it is easy to use. Very frequent trains even on a Saturday, and the nearest station is about a block away from our apartment.
