  10. 11. Claudia knew that she could never pull off the old-fashioned kind of running away. That is, running away in a heat of anger with a knapsack on her back.

To a large place, a comfortable place, an indoor place, and preferably a beautiful place. And that’s why she decided on the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
