From Riches to Rags

Alexandra David-Neel, the opera singer who became a courageous world traveler, was the first Westerner to reach the forbidden, holy Tibetan city of Lhasa. She succeeded where men failed.

The Guimel, the Asian Art Museum in Paris, is celebrating her life.

Also in this museum: a coat from Uzbekistan, tightly quilted.

And if you like Japanese Art, there is 

a special treat here: a Kimono exhibition.
