One place that I definitely wanted to see when I was in SoCal last month was the Getty Center in Los Angeles (hopefully next time I can check out the Villa). The vast collection of visual arts housed at the Museum was enough motivation for me to find time to visit the place. There was so much to see, the incredible architecture, the exhibits, the garden. I remember thinking to myself that I could easily spend countless hours just sitting by the garden reading a book or just relaxing while allowing myself to be surrounded by a huge assortment of priceless masterpieces of famous people with names I can barely pronounce.
Unfortunately, the visit was short and sweet. Time was just not on our side. After a couple of hours of oohhing and aahhing at the exhibits, enjoying the variety of plants and listening to the soothing sound of water at the Central Garden, it was time to move on.
