So, no hike yesterday. Instead:

Village of Painters: Narrative Scrolls from West Bengal at the Museum of International Folk Art. The work of an Indian caste that traditionally created scrolls telling stories — mythological or historical — and went from town to town, singing the narrative as they unrolled the scroll to tell story. The simple style combines with vibrant colors to create some amazing compositions; and the whole approach resembles sequential art (or "comics").

Casino Royale. Not everything I wanted it to be, and certainly not without its faults, but I think it's the best Bond flick since Bond became Bond, 'round about From Russia With Love or Goldfinger.
