On the Sunday before my birthday Rich and I were planning to go to the zoo and hang out for the day, unfortunately my birthday is right in the middle of winter and so it rained and rained and rained pretty much ALL day. So we decided to choose our "Plan B" and head to Te Papa and see the Andy Warhol Exhibition.
Rich and I are pretty lucky as this is the second time we have gotten to see an exhibition of Andy Warhol's work - the first time was when we were living in Seoul. The exhibition in Seoul was pretty great, although it was SO packed you had to fight to get to the front to even see the works. Fortunately for us, Wellington's population is MUCH less than that of Seoul. So we could see much more of the work.
We weren't allowed to take photos at the exhibition itself - but you sure knew that there was a Warhol exhibition happening at Te Papa.
I picked up a few fun things at the gift store at the Warhol exhibit - some "pop art" badges and an Andy Warhol card that I've sent to a friend.
Even though it was a freezing cold day, Rich and I decided we should head to the top of Te Papa and take on the view from the roof. It was freezing!
Here's a could of views from inside Te Papa from the top floor looking down - it always gives me a bit of vertigo!
I hope you've all had a good start to the week - Rich and I were both able to return to our offices today, which was good. We are luckier than some folks in the city who aren't going to be able to return to their buildings this week due to quake damage.
