Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The Natural History Museum
Partially in an attempt to make peace with the city of London, mostly because I love the museum itself I visited one of landmarks: the Natural History Museum. London's Natural History Museum is truly THE natural history museum, not merely A natural history museum. The first and last time I saw it I was eleven, during my very first trip to England. I had not been back there for all these years and yesterday was a rediscovery. I will post more about it in the upcoming days. I had wanted to go there in ages and more since I had missed Darwin Day. As a child, the museum gave me a crash course in the theory of evolution and in biology, among other things, that I never got at school. This museum made me discover and understand nature a bit more and our origins as a species. And it is a beautiful museum, architecturally speaking. This is why I wanted to upload first a picture of its main entrance. Walking in it is as much an experience as watching the displays. So there it is, I visited the Natural History Museum yesterday and you haven't yet you are missing something.
