Bonus Postcards: Museums Abroad (#FriFotos)

Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (2009)Maroon Museum in Accompong Town, Jamaica (2011)Museum in the wild: Xunantunich, archeological site in western Belize (2011)The ladies' powder room at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC (2010)  Not sure what's more amazing in Taiwan - the museums or the parks that surround them (2011)Museums in DC are the ultimate party venue - Corcoran Gallery of Art (2010)

A few museum scenes from my travels and from home of course (Washington DC, also known as museum land). I can’t seem to find my images from the Prado or the Louvre, it’s been a long week on the heels of TBEX and I’ve been struck by some sort of post-trip exhaustion!

The most special of these visits for me was to the small but moving Maroon Museum in Accompong Town, Jamaica.
