Alexandria National Museum Was a Disappointment

Alexandria is an ancient city and as any tourist would expect, its National Museum should be filled with great things. But, I was disappointed. While the objects were labeled properly, the museum is dead. Like a necropolis. I think it has something to do with the kind of too much

Take a Peek of Catalan Art at MNAC

To be honest, I never had the chance to take a peek of Catalan Art at MNAC (Museo Nacional d’Art de Catalunya). I arrived at almost 4 in the afternoon on my last day in Barcelona and I simply didn’t have much time. Instead, I went around and admired the
