Museums of History Around the World (pg. 2)

Museums - The Vatican Museums

This museum is located in Vatican City along with St. Peter's Basilica. It's also the home of the Pope. These museums are like the Smithsonian museums because there are more than one. There is the historical museum, a giant library, a museum that focuses on Egypt and a lot more. It started out in the 1500's with a small collection and now hosts up to 3 million visitors a year. While in the Vatican City, check out the Sistine Chapel as well. It is one of the most beautiful interiors of any building you'll see!

Museums - National Museum

The National Museum is located in New Delhi, India and has over 200,000 objects. These artifacts range from terracotta pieces from the Indus Valley to pieces belonging to the Kings and Queens that once reigned over India. There are tapestries, books, manuscripts, etc. The pieces range over 5,000 years and the guided tours are in English, Hindi, Japanese, French and German. But there is one surprising thing. If you want to go, be expected to pay more than the citizens of India. If they pay 20 rupees then you pay 200 rupees to get admission! Don't let that discourage you from checking out other places India has to offer lik the food, the Taj Mahal and the beach state of Goa!

The whole "social" thing is messed up. People have to be and act a certain way to get into anything, weather it's a stupid friendship groip or a certain field. WHy can't we just be recognised and accepted for who we are and for our talants? Why can't we do things the way we want to? WHy do we feel we need to please others by doing it their way? Half the time, they don't even ask us to do things their way. And what everyone else said, I couldn't agree more.

i have changed my views on things like this, i think 99% of people that hunt and the people that complain about the hunting are complete hypocrites though.  if you think that its justified to kill an animal in a given context, you must have a difference between a human and the animal that if true of the human would justify killing the animal, otherwise you say X justifies killing something but doesnt justify killing something ate the same time, which of course is a contradiction. hopefully people can understand that.  What gives, polar bears for example, the right to kill humans for food but doesn't give humans the right to kill an animal for food?
