Week 3/12: You are the Light of the World.
I hope you’ve been having an enjoyable weekend!
There’s been a light festival in Geneva (GenevaLux) where local art is being displayed in the form of lights around the entire city! But before we get all “lit up”, let’s see how the day went…
I started by visiting the Natural History Museum in Geneva.
I used to dislike museums because of how I considered them to be boring, but because Geneva abounds of museum, I felt it might be a good thing to give it a try.
The museum is celebrating its 50th year this year, so it’s a pretty big deal.
I’ll probably do a separate series on my experience at museums, because a blog post is perhaps not enough to tell you how amazing museums are. Education doesn’t always come from sitting in a class, and a museum experience gives you just enough information on a topic to make you want to know more.
For instance, I found it fascinating to discover that a dinosaur femur weights 30 tons . How much heavier is this, compared to the human femur? (My med pals?)
Another fun fact that I discovered is, there are “two head turtles”, this one is called Janus and is named after the Greek bifid god Janus.
Again, I can’t post everything that I saw at the museum here (and would consider doing a museum series), the amount of information was just too overwhelming!
I later went to visit the Russian church in Geneva, and it was my first exposure to Russian culture. This is definitely one of the countries I’d love to visit.
Finally, below, Geneva in Lights.
Thank you for reading!
PS: I had to keep this article a bit shorter because I have a handful of content coming up this weekend, so stay tuned!
