The flower arrangements are always astounding, dramatic and exotic. You could go to the museum for them alone.
Of course, on a vacation-time Thursday there were a million billion people there, and most of them were taking photos on their cell phones --just like me. Never quite know what to look at, since if you look at everything you get major sensory overload.

to see the young man playing music.

No one there for an instant.
Then looking down at the hall
and wondering which particular treasures were absorbed that day.
