As a biologist how can you walk past the Natural History Museum and NOT go in?
The building itself is a cathedral to Mother Earth.
Beautiful carvings which always make me smile.
Darwin, a hero of mine.
Not forgetting Wallace – who ALSO came up with the theory of evolution, possibly before Darwin.
But allowed Darwin to publish and take the credit (and the flak)
When I came here with Richard in 2009 he spent hours in this room and we looked at every single rock.
He was fascinated.
Must say I am too.
