Down House

 I went down to Down House the other day, to start off a new project about my lovely neighbour* Charles Darwin.

It was amazing, especially the recreation of Darwin's deck on The Beagle, which astounded me with a VERY LIFELIKE hologram of him sitting there playing with dead birds or something. I'm easily amused.

I learnt some INTERESTING FACTS about things like The Glutton Club and honey bees and I befriended a charming old man who worked there. He was probably excited to see a visitor under the age of 40; I was the only one.

I feel like a massive geek now, even more than usual.

*(I sometimes think I live in Victorian Darwin not still alive then? What?)
