Museum walking is so much more tortuous than walking a long distance. The human body was not designed to step, step, stand, lean, step, stand and repeat. The 20 km of museum walking felt like 100 km of just walking. Regardless I filled many gigabytes of camera card space in a very short time. My Flickr photostream has almost tripled since leaving Canada. When you have so much to see in these museums, one can't resist.
The Altes (old) Museum housed many early Roman and Greek exhibits while the Neues (new) Museum has a collection Egyptian artifacts. It is a good thing that we purchased the three day museum pass that offers us admission to over 50 museums because due to our slow pace through museums, Rae and I where unable to complete the Neues Museum. Nefratiti's bust will have to wait for tomorrow.
