There's something in history...

Museums, ruins, historical sites, mostly anything old - they are what make me go on trips for. I love those ohs and ahs I get as I behold them. Like on this one inside a World War II train in a war museum. This is what I call my Jonah moment. I was inside the train.

But there's something in history that is depressing. At least in these finds I call train entrails or it could be due to having no idea what they are really. So while waiting for the rest of the tour group to assemble for the next stop I loitered in a nearby orchid shop for some cheer.

  1. Like you, I do love historical sites but I avoid most war places because they ARE depressing and I get too emotionally involved in them. Your orchids are beautiful!

    1. Yes, Bettyl. I reckon I will avoid war places from now on or after doing just one more - Auschwitz, and then I swear I'm done with them places.

  4. I love old trains but shy away from too many war museums...after awhile they can be depressing,,glorifying different ways to kill each other,
