The appliance of science
"How lovely" they say.
I avoid these circles.
But i did, study science, i spent time dissecting human brains, classifying plants, discussing mathematical algorithms, wearing a white lab coat and burning my biro in the flame of a bunsen burner.
The Natural History Museum is like a paradise, I'd take it over Selfridges any day. Museums are one of those things i tend to do solo, i can get quite excitable, especially if there is a penguin, a dinosaur or a big piece of fluorite. The building alone is enough, the carvings and sheer scale are awe inspiring.
I eagerly await Jen Altman's new book Lustre. The colours of minerals are so very different to those of flora, they make for a very welcome change.
Also the Natural History Museum, like a lot of them in London is free. Gratis. Nothing to pay.
and there is a shop.
and you can get married there
and if you have small children you can literally spend a night at the museum.
