Whistler's mum

I'm currently hosting a research visitor from Scotland.

Yesterday I played tour guide. We started at the NGV because he wanted to revisit a Rembrandt that he had seen in Europe, which he remembered was loaned by the NGV. We also took the opportunity to have scones at the tea room and to check out Whistler's mother which is currently on loan from the Musee d'Orsay.
After lunch at Chinatown, I took John up to the Lygon Street. We walked over to the museum and then onto Brunswick Street before catching a tram back into the city.

John is a keen gardener so we decided to go for a walk to the Shrine of Remembrance and the Botanical Garden before walking along the Yarra back to the apartment where Nathan had prepared a roast chook for dinner.

It was a nice way to spend Easter Sunday.
