Slept in today, and it is still overcast, so the day trip is off. Will set the alarm tomorrow and do it then. Today, we are going to a museum. I'm getting a bit lethargic being on vacation.

Glenbow Museum

Shakyamuni Buddha

Spent a few hours at the Glenbow Museum. My favorite exhibit was one called Many Faces, Many Paths: Art of Asia where I took the picture to the right, of Shakyamuni Buddha as an ascetic before his enlightenment (click on it for larger image). There were many other statues of Buddha, Shiva, Kali et al.

Another interesting exhibit was Unexpected Treasures from the Vault, which included suits of armor, Ethiopian religious icons, a birch bark canoe, larger-than-life portraits from the 19th Century, and much more.

I've snapped out of my lethargic, sloth-like state from earlier today. Now it's action stations, baby!
