The Getty

After the pure tackiness that is Hollywood, we witnessed the opposite extreme yesterday (Tuesday) - the Getty Museum.

Set on a hill, high above Los Angeles, the Getty has decent air quality. We'd thought the LA air wasn't great, but it wasn't until we visited the Getty that we realised just how bad it had been. But the air was the least of the Getty's qualities.

The buildings are stunning; works of art themselves. The art was great. Some superb drawings and wonderful paintings.
The garden was wonderful. A work of art.

We had a lovely lunch in the restaurant, overlooking the hills to the north of LA, very good food, but not a work of art.

All in all, absolutely wonderful and worth travelling all the way from England for.
