Day off in Raleigh

Sadie and I went to the M.C. Escher exhibit in Raleigh at the North Carolina Museum of Art a couple days ago.  Very comprehensive collection on display with I believe 130+ pieces. MC Escher Other World 1947 It covered his whole career with early sketches, linoleum cuts, wood carvings, and even the simurgh his father brought him that was used in a few of his pieces.  I have always been fascinated by his use of perspective and the amazing detail he works into each piece.  Several pieces I had never seen before and several pieces I knew were completely new to me in their original formats. The exhibit is only open for a few more weeks until January 17, so get out if you have interest before it it gone.

No trip to Raleigh is complete without a meal and we tried Guasaca for the first time.  It is a Venezuelan arepa restaurant and is has been consistently rated the best cheap eats in Raleigh on Yelp for a while now.  I had the signature pork and Sadie created her own version of what she described as a Wrong Doug (reference Moe’s).  Excellent meal for a very good price and the line went from two people to out the door while we ate.  gusaca arepas
