Met Member Spotlight!: Who is Esteban?

Esteban has been with theMET for quite some time now and to this day we still don’t know who exactly this mysterious man might be. As the big mama here, I can piece together a few things. We know he has a taste for the finer things in life (take a look at that steak!), he’s actually stayed at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, and he grooves to songs like Timmy T’s One More Try, Radiohead and Jackson 5. Yes, the man is still a mystery. What I do know is that Esteban (if that’s his real name) is a financial adviser during the day and a hidden food blogger at night. His blog, titled Rhyme and Raisin, will give you a sneak peek into this man’s life. His pictures will make you salivate and his witty humor will make you laugh. I love how he brings in funny little anecdotes either about his life or some current pop culture moment into his writing. Make sure to check it out. For all that I do know about you, Esteban, you are one cool cat. Thanks for gracing us with your wit and charm. The Met is a richer, if not more mysteriously cool, place with you here. Oh yes…and if you happen to be Brad Pitt, say hello to Angelina and the kids for us!

It is, however, a cultural and historical Tibetan treasure that has been undergoing tremendous changes in the past few decades, particularly in the midst of global controversy between Tibet and China.
