Suhail Bisharat along with Phil Jordan and Leila Bisharat planned a wonderful Historical Society trip to New York.

 Wednesday, February 4 - We started at the American Museum of Natural History with our own wonderful guide Suhail visiting Petra Lost City in Stone traveling exhibit. The afternoon we were on our own where some of us saw "42 Street" Musical and others visited the Finnish Textile Marimekko Exhibit. That night Eldon and Betts hosted a reception at their home in New York.

Thursday, February 5 - We were at the Metropolitan Museum of Art where in the morning were so fortunate to have Daniel Walker give a presentation of the Islamic Section. After lunch at the Museum restaurant we also had the honor of getting a presentation of the Egyptian Collection by Barbara Porter of New York who is also a well known historian as is Barbara Porter of Chebeague. We ended our day with a dinner at a fine Turkish Restaurant.

These are just a few images of our three fabulous days.
