Museum & Tangerines
Mabel Watson Payne already knows a lot about elephants and about monkeys from books and zoos, so she was ready to spot them on Tuesday afternoon at the Asian Art Museum. We knew that when we got back for dinner later, her parents would be asking what we had seen, so it was my job to take a few elephant/monkey pictures that would help us to make a good report.
There had been a plan to have our snack in the museum cafe, but in the end we spent too much time looking at things and the cafe was closing by the time we got down there. So instead we had some tangerines on a granite bench out in front of the building. Mabel thought that was great fun, but then that is her singular gift – to make anything and everything into great fun.
