If you could clone one element from another city you’ve visited — a building, a cultural institution, a common street food, etc. — and bring it back to your own hometown, what would it be?
The Paris’ Louvre or the New york’s Metropolitan to be able to go frequently to visit its halls and contemplate the masterpieces they contain whenever I want, without rush, knowing I can come back any time. No need of expensive travels to enjoy the wonders of art.It would be great for me. It would enrich the cultural life of my city a lot and attract a high profile tourism.
But, thinking about the question twice, I don’t know if they’ll fit in a small city like mine. Besides, those great museums have incomparable surroundings. They are both in great cities worth it another visit. I would like to go back to Paris and New York and visit the museums there in their natural habitat. This way I’ll have the opportunity to see once more all the other wonders of those cities: their other museums, buildings and monuments, theaters, music halls, parks, the life of the streets… But these are only dreams. I’ll continue taking virtual visits to the art galleries through my computer and looking at the big cities I love in the movies.
