We continued into another exhibition on this floor:
American Identities: A New Look (well worth visiting)
That was it for us. On the first floor we quickly went through African Innovations and Connecting Cultures: A World in Brooklyn and checked out the gift shop and called it a day as far as the museum was concerned. There was no energy left for their large Egyptian collection on the 3rd floor.
Stomachs were growling. We were pleasantly surprised that, when we exited the museum, we weren't hit with a blast of hot air - the cloud cover had kept the temperatures in the 80's. Phew. We walked a couple of blocks to check out a vegetarian restaurant Benedicte found on line. Looked through the window and decided to try another place
we had passed that looked more promising. Much better. The other two had beet soup (!?!) which they agreed tasted "odd", but which both finished to the last drop. I had a Grilled Emmenthaler Cheese sandwich with grilled sweet & sour onions on rye and a big mug of delish coffee. Yum. Ate the whole thing.
I sketched the people in front of my table while I waited for my sandwich.
