Marta and I went to the Getty Villa one day. It was my first visit to the museum by Malibu beach, and it did not disappoint; the place was beautiful:

He also asked if my wearing a floral wreath was intentional, because it was clever of me to do so. And then he asked his wife to take a photo of me standing next to him after I gave him the okay for that request. It was quite a strange encounter.
