Clouds and Antiquities in Malibu - The Getty Villa Edition

When the temperatures finally get lower than 80 degrees in LA, you grab the winter jacket you've been meaning to wear for about 3 weeks now and head to the nearest (or farthest) museum you can. Why? Because culture you guys. That's why.

Or maybe you just want to go somewhere new. Whatever reason you see fit. The point is a couple of days ago I bee-lined my way to the Getty Villa in Malibu to see what it has to show.

The Getty Villa is dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome and Etruria. It has more than 40,000 antiquities, some pretty interesting gardens and amazing views of the southernmost point of the Malibu coast.


On some fashion notes: The day was pretty cloudy, so I took advantage of it and did something unusual for California weather -I covered my body from the neck down. Shocking!

Below are some snippets of the Getty Villa, which I must admit looked kind of sombre and mysterious with such a gray sky. In addition to the fact that during the winter time, there's nobody outside. Spooky.
