Free museums !

Un week-end de mémères, donc ça va aller vite ...

Samedi aprèm', on est allé depuis chez moi à Alamo Square, puisqu'Elsa n'y avait pas encore mis les pieds, en passant par Haight Ashbury, le quartier hippie.


Et le soir, on a été voir un feu d'artifice tiré derrière le Bay Bridge. Pas trop mal, mais peut mieux faire, dire qu'il était annoncé comme le plus beau de Californie ... Bizarre. Bon ça fait quand même de jolies photos ...


Faut quand même que je vous dise que pendant ce temps-là, Sandra, une collègue à Elsa entendait du bruit à l'extérieur de chez elle ... Et quand elle a ouvert la fenêtre pour voir, des tas de policiers armés jusqu'aux dents lui ont dit de rester chez elle et de s'enfermer à double tour (avec un mégaphone ... vous imaginez bien non ? comme dans les films ...). Ya de quoi bien flipper quand même. Elle a téléphoné à ses colocs, et elles lui ont dit que c'était rien, faut juste tout fermer à clef .... Rassurant le fait que les colocs voient ça comme une routine hein ? Enfin bref, elle a appris en fin de soirée qu'un dingue armé se baladait dans les maisons du coin. (Pour rassurer les plus soucieux, elle habite loin de chez moi, dans un quartier où les gens dans la rue lui disent des trucs comme "be safe".)

Voilà donc pour le samedi.

Le dimanche, c'était la fête des mères ici .... Evidemment j'ai décroché le téléphone pour l'occasion et ai rapidement compris qu'il y avait quelques semaines de décalages avec la France .... Pour la première fois à SF, 17 musées ont laissé les gens entrer gratuitement. Nous pauvres stagiaires allons donc tenter de faire une journée marathon/musées.

La grasse mat' m'a privé de faire l'Exploratorium (un peu comme la Villette), mais je rejoins Sandra au Palace of the Legion of Honor en début d'après-midi. Aurora m'a dit que c'est un des plus beaux musées de SF, tant par son emplacement que par ses oeuvres. Pour le premier point, je suis complètement d'accord, le musée est situé en hauteur dans Lincoln Park, à l'extrême Nord-Ouest de la ville. On a donc vue sur l'océan, le Golden Gate Bridge, le golf du parc et la ville au loin. Pour ce qui est de l'intérieur, ben c'est principalement des sculptures et peintures européennes, même françaises pour la plupart avec Monet et Rodin (qui doit avoir un abonnement pour la Californie du Nord). Donc, bon pas trop ma tasse de thé, et puis c'est sûr on a mieux à Paris : je viens pas à SF pour voir de l'art européen.


On a fait le tour vite fait bien fait et on reprend le bus direction le De Young Museum, qui a une très bonne réputation et duquel j'attends bien plus. Et c'était vraiment pas mal, plein de trucs à voir, des cultures du monde entier : art d'Amérique Latine, d'Afrique, d'Océanie, d'Asie, peintures et photos d'artistes américains, un peu d'art contemporain aussi ... Bref, tout sauf l'Asie (qui se trouve au Asian Art Museum), et l'Europe, qui se trouve au Legion of Honor. On y passe bien plus de temps, c'est sympa de voir ce que les américains font ... (D'ailleurs je me demande si il y a vers Paris un musée d'art américain ?).

Art africain

Art contemporain
Art américain
(haha, je plaisante, tout n'était pas comme ça hein ...)

On essaie donc de tout voir assez rapidement, vu que c'est énorme, puis il est déjà 17h, on a super faim car on n'a rien mangé de la journée, mais c'est pas grave, le zoo aussi est gratuit et on prend le bus pour aller voir ça à l'extrémité sud de la ville. On marche super vite, il doit être 18h et on ne sait pas quand ça ferme. Comme c'est assez loin à pied de l'arrêt de bus on n'a bien le temps de déséspérer en voyant tous les gens aller dans le sens inverse du nôtre.

Les affiches à l'entrée nous informent que c'est fermé, mais bon on n'a pas fait tout ce chemin pour rien alors tant pis, on entre quand même, on va essayer de voir au moins comment c'est foutu et si ça vaudra le coup un jour de payer pour venir. Hélàs plus beaucoup de monde et la plupart des animaux ont été rentrés, plus on avance et plus ça se vide, on voit juste de temps à autre quelqu'un du personnel qui nous dit que c'est fermé et nous indique gentillement la sortie quand on lui fait croire qu'on est perdue. On s'enfonce encore un peu plus dans le parc, c'est assez glauque un zoo vide d'ailleurs ... Jusqu'à ce qu'on se fasse escortées suivies par la voiture de la sécurité jusqu'à la sortie du zoo ;).


Bon, au moins on aura vu que le zoo à l'air pas mal foutu, on pourra y aller si un jour on a vraiment rien à faire (ce que je doute). Affamées on va manger dans le premier truc qu'on trouve, puis on retourne à SF en milieu de soirée, bien fatiguées par la course.

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my
own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a site or
if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
Usually it is caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I looked
at. And after this article "Free museums !". I was actually moved enough to post a

it's okay. Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of the remarks appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I would like to follow you.
