LACMA – Los Angeles County Museum of Modern Art

13 Apr LACMA12

I have been living in California for almost fifteen years, and still have some much to see.We moved from San Diego to LA almost six months ago, and I feel like a tourist, always finding new places to visit.

The other day we went to the Los Angeles County Museum of Modern Art. The LACMA is such a beautiful museum, and worth a visit.


They have a great permanent collections as well as temporary exhibitions. My favorites are the Kandinsky, Miro, Rodin, Picasso, Diego Rivera, and of course, my all time idol Frida Kahlo.

I feel butterflies on my stomach every time I am near Frida's artwork

  • Mon-Fri, after 3 pm if you are a Los Angeles resident;
  • On the second Tuesday of each month
  • On select federal holidays, sponsored by Target
  • On Memorial Day – Monday, May 26, 2014

The Sugarloaf Mountain is located at the mouth of the Guanabara Bay (Baia da Guanabara) in Rio de Janeiro. The view from the top of the 1,299 ft mountain is spectacular. You can also take a glass-walled (bondinho) cable car that runs between the peaks of Sugarloaf Mountain and Morro da Urca.

To me, Rio is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and definitely my favorite.

If you ever go to Rio, do not miss the Pao de Acucar!
