French cheese - Cheeses of France - a short guide If French cheese for you just means brie, camembert, roquefort and the "stuff that looks like cheddar or gouda" in the local supermarché when you're on holiday, then you don't know what you're missing! Every region of France has its own particular cheeses. Back in the time of General de Gaulle, France had 246 cheeses - and it has quite a few more than that now, given the large number of new products, inventions or copies of traditional cheeses, that have emerged from France's hundreds of dairy companies in the past 20 years. This guide is not by any means a comprehensive listing of all the products that France can offer to deck a well-garnished cheese-board. It is a look at some of the most common, and the most tasty. This is just a choice of goat's cheeses in one gourmet French cheese shop

Supreme Council of Antiquities - Museums The Egyptian Museum in Cairo contains the world's most extensive collection of pharaonic antiquities; no visit to Egypt is complete without a trip through its galleries.

Diane Arbus & William Eggleston Cheim & Read has two great photo exhibits happening concurrently - Diane Arbus' In the Absence of Others and William Eggleston's 21st Century. Arbus' black and white photographs feature "empty interiors and artificial landscapes spanning the 60s" while Eggleston's recent works focus on color and composition in interior and exterior scenes shot in Cuba, California, Paris, Memphis, New Jersey, and Queens. Diane Arbus (1923-1971), best know for her documentary portraits of people from the margins of society like carnival performers, nudists, transvestites, and the institutionalized, created intensely intimate images infused with an air of mystery and melancholy. Her amazing works of empty rooms, unpopulated hotel lobbies, and deserted Disneyland and Coney Island attractions evoke a similar, quiet, haunting aura.
