As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Right from Die Zeit the link to the British Museum, Ancient India. Wonderful site for all who have a heart for history.
It's strange. I've never been a real heroine in history or so. But when I started fifth class (where then the foreign languages being) I chose Latin because I wanted to become an Archeologician. This changed over the years, and school history teaching has tried really its best to make history feel bitter for me, but the less real knowledge I have, the more interest I have for old cultures like the Inka, the Maya, the old Egypt - especially them; it all started with Tut-Ench-Amun, and many, many more. I read popular-scientific scripts about this, sometimes I buy a book (more or less popular or scientific) about it.
When I was in London the first time, I was 12 and we went with school. We spent a whole day at The British Museum and I loved this day most of all. I found it amazing to not to have to pay for a museum but to have my bag looked through every time I went in by a security man (or was it a police man?).
The last time on my own in London was June 1999 and the weather was fantastic. It was clear, warm and sunny. I spent most of my time at the green near Buckingham Palace. But the days, the weather was rainy, The British Museum and I had a wonderful time together. I really inhalated every minute I could walk back and look something up, I could sit down and rest in the middle of all this mummies or drawings or whatever. Wonderful.
Next time will be with Wondergirl I think. I hope I'll be able to make her feel some of this special atmostpehere there, too.
