If you follow my tweets, you know that I was in New York last week for a couple of days. This was a rare trip for me for two reasons. First, Jenna was with me, and second I wasn't there for work. This trip was strictly about seeing New York, and more importantly deciding if it was someplace that Jenna and I would like to live when we are done in London.
One of my ulterior motives for this trip was a visit to The Museum of Modern Art to see Van Gogh's The Starry Night. It is one of my favorite paintings, but I had never had a chance to see it in person. When we went to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam a few months ago, I learned it was in New York at MOMA, and was looking forward to seeing it there.
Sadly, when we got to the gallery we learned that the painting was now traveling, and I wouldn't be able to see it.
According to the sign it will be back in New York in Autumn, so maybe I'll get a chance then. If not, then it's coming to Amsterdam in 2009, and I'll go over to see it there.
