Even before I lived in Hong Kong, I've had for quite some time, an affinity for Asian cultures. I love the food, art, and many of the customs. One of my favorite museums in Paris is the Musee Guimet. It is the largest collection of Asian art and artifacts in Europe. I didn't live too far from there, just a couple of Metro stops. I became a member so that I could go and sketch as often as I wanted to. It was a nice way to spend a cold winter's day!
