Sunday - A trip to Mekka, the exhibition

If you really need to go out on a day like this, then you may want at least to avoid being al fresco...

The exhibition "Mecca" currently at the ethnographic museum in Leiden (Volkenkunde Rijksmuseum, very close to Central Station, so you don't get too wet) explores the journey of the pilgrims and their experiences, memories and tips, through pictures, objects and testimonies.

It started off at the British Museum in London where it was fully booked, so it's likely to be an extremely high quality event.
