Museum of Fine Art, Houston

Since we read Stories from the Silk Road a few years ago and just read the book A Thousand Splendid Suns and are getting ready to read Three Cups of Tea, this exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston intrigued us. We hadn't planned to go today, but when we saw it was right across the street from where we parked, we couldn't resist at least going to take a peek at it. We spent about an hour there, just enough to whet our appetite.Here's a little blurb from their website: Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul explores the rich cultural heritage of ancient Afghanistan from the Bronze Age (2500 B.C.) through the rise of trade along the Silk Road in the first century A.D.

We hope to return later this week to do the tour so we'll try to get pictures then.
