How to Be The Worst Kind of Tourist

On the way back from a(nother) long bike ride the other day, I finally stopped by the New National Gallery.

They let you take pictures of the artwork!

I have a 'year pass' to all the museums here, so I get into all of them free.

I think this is the way to do it. Without the sunk cost of admission, you don't feel the need to linger just to get your money's worth.

So I spent maybe 45 minutes at the gallery, snapping photos flashlessly. That's all the time I felt like being there, so I left.

Extracurricular activities are most palatable, I find, when you can align them with your mood and attention span.

This probably makes me a philistine, but at least I'm a philistine with photographs.
