Matt and I have a funny way of traveling—we don’t spend too much time in one place. We hammer through museums in about 45 minutes. Literally saw the Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay in one afternoon. Why are we so quick, or maybe hasty?
Are we products of the MTV generation? My parents still don’t have cable, so that doesn’t explain it. (And I still have to pretend to have seen the Dire Straits “Money for Nothing” video.)
Are we so culturally curious that we can absorb it all and understand it in so short a window? Ha. Girl. I wish.
Or maybe our brains have limited capacity, say, about 45 minutes worth. That might be it. That might just be it.
Whatever the reason, we take in what we can and then hit the road.
