The Grand Palais is the large building on the left. It has an amazing amount of windows and it is quite beautiful.However, I did manage to keep my new found tradition of Cultural Wednesday alive by visiting this exhibit. I have to say, I wasn't crazy about it. Displayed are things discovered underwater off the shore Istanbul, so I was initially exciting about learning about the history as well as seeing some of the treasures. Entering was really cool. There was a corridor with huge pictures of the ocean and great oceanic sound effects, but that was the best part. The artifacts were displayed badly and there were about 4 million people crowded around each one. I was stepped on, pushed, ran into and also had my bottom pinched more than I care to think about.

I had all the time in the world last week during vacation to catch up my posts, look for jobs, grade papers, plan lessons, go to museums, clean my apartment, etc., but I did very little of that stuff. Instead, I choose to sleep and go to the gym a lot. And you know what, it was pretty enjoyable just being lazy for once.
