view of the city from the park

This time I only photographed outside the museum, because I had a real photo marathon planned. I feel that time is important to see this special museum on the grounds of this park. The Cameroon exhibition (in Africa, see the poster on the gate of the first photo of this seris) hopefully will still be there, when I have time to go to Zurich again. What I absolutely adore in this museum is the collection of figures of buddhas and boddisatvas from different Asian countries. And sometimes their special exhibitions, for example about ancient chinese scrolls or kimonos, japanese masks. Or their special events: once a sitar concert or an Indian bollywood star came to introduce her father's art collection. It's a wonderful museum, and there are several buildings, now with the new green glass "construction". (Of course, one can't take photos inside the museum, so unfortunately my description must suffice). (On the map here I marked the place from where I took this photo.)
