Every time I've been to Rochester (this trip marked my second visit) it has rained. And I've been caught in it. Wearing this very same coat. And have sought shelter both times under this trellis on the grounds of the Eastman House.
Like a bumblebee, Hye-Sung is attracted to the flowers. She kept going, "So much green! I cannot believe! No! I cannot believe! It is real!"
While in Rochester, Hye-Sung and I ended up hanging out with Saori, a mutual friend. Saori was in town for only a day, driving to Rochester from Buffalo to visit the conservation labs and galleries at the Eastman House. (She was in Buffalo for a grad school interview- go Saori!)
The only permanent exhibit at the Eastman House is the gallery of historic cameras. It is also the only space in which you can sneakily take your own photographs. The guards are very sharp-eyed.
While it was not raining, it was actually nice and spring-like. The grounds are pleasant (though quite small when compared to Winterthur).
