A few weeks ago I saw an incredible movie at the MoMA. ‘Meru’, it’s a documentary about three guys setting up to conquer a peak in the Himalayas that has never been conquered before. Its a beautiful story of human determination, failure and triumph. The amazing fact is that it was shot by two of the three climbers themselves without any camera crew. It is playing now in some theaters. Its a must-see movie even if you don’t have any interest in mountain climbing. It is currently playing in NYC at Angelika Film Center, at Jacob Burns Pleasantville NY, at Bow Tie Cinemas 100 White Plains NY and at Bow Tie Cinemas Roslyn Theatre Roslyn NY
Here are some photos from the movie:
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of my favorite destinations in New York. Recently I saw an exhibit there called “China: Through the looking Glass”. It is very inspiring exhibit that focuses on how Chinese aesthetics before and after the communist revolution influenced western fashion designers. The show is beautifully set with Chinese costumes and ceramics juxtaposed with western designs. The show ends September 7, 2015.
Laila, loves water and each time we go to Central Park she has to step into any puddle or pool she sees. I try and stop her from going into the main fountain because the park rangers say that the water plants are very delicate and the dogs disturb them. But since Laila is off the leash it doesn’t work to tell her to stop. She runs and jumps into the fountain despite my protests, But I make sure its a quick dip and she doesn’t lurks in the fountain and disturb the delicate water lilies.
