Yesterday, September 11, 2009 Jane and I went to Arecibo. We were on official business, but ended up sightseeing in downtown Arecibo. First we went to the Museum of Art, used to be Museum of Art and History. Last time I was there it was a mere collection of old artifacts (bottles, kitchen appliances and utensils and bits and pieces of "old furniture"--I hesitate to call them antiques) Now, it is a ReAl Museum. It has been divided into three rooms, or are they halls?. One has the current collection, one the standing collection (Not impressive although it had a few interesting pieces like a aluminum and steel piece called "Pelegrina") and one will have photographs of Arecibo (this one was not finished) However, I found the statue of Reina Isabel II that used to be in the "placita" de la Roosevelt. Edgardo and I had been wondering about it. It has been placed in what I suppose will be "La Sala de Arecibo." Here's a Picture.
