The Getty Center in L.A. is a 55 acre facility with stunning architecture, five acres of grounds with groomed gardens, art museum buildings housing art from the Middle Ages to present, a research center plus 50 acres of natural setting. Not to be confused with the Getty Villa in Malibu where the antiquities collection is housed. I most loved the design of the trees with the tall thick wires and where the branches spread upwards and all meet up there to give shade for when you want to rest on those chairs. Such a beautiful scene when you look up into the sky — a mixture of art and nature. A true creative creation.
There is also a tree-lined walkway that crosses the stream passing through areas of exotic grasses and descends to a plaza with Bougainvillea arbors. The stream flows through the plaza and cascades over a stone waterfall into a pool. There are special gardens round the pool with the plants and hard materials selected for their interplay of color, light, and reflections. The garden provides a campus setting for the immaculate white travertine buildings and the panoramic views of Los Angeles.
Okey, let’s get to my coffee which I haven’t posted in a long time…
Well, I get my coffee fix from my kitchen in the past few, visiting sbux only when I feel like I want to after my run or walking meditation. Today, I brewed a cinnamon coffee by sbux and I paired it with a foot long whole wheat raisin bread from 85°C bakery. Btw, are those faces I see on the bread?
Happy Sunday everyone!
