Teri and The American Museum of Natural History
My friend Teri was in New York with her brother Dana and their friend Joann. We grew up playing in bagpipe bands together. They are en route to Egypt. Teri's son Cesar and his fiancee Jen joined from Maryland and we all went to the Museum of Natural History What a great time. It was a joy to see them all AND see this museum. Keep in mind I live less than a block away, I see the building every day, and I play bagpipes in front of it yet in the two years I have lived in New York I had never been. Until today. Why? Because it is right there; I can always go!
And I had forgotten The Star of India is in there. I live down the street from the largest and most famous star sapphire in the world! Wow.
