doesn't that just beat all?

On Sunday, we visited the Indian Museum which is almost 200 years old and the largest museum in India. We are pretty sure it is reason enough to visit this country. (L. loved it. She went skipping along from gallery to gallering, singing "India makes me happy!" )
They do not allow photography, but it looks a lot like this. Their collection was very impressive and kind of pretty much blew our minds. (except BR who only wanted to play in the fountain, of course) This, the room full of rocks and a Buddhist temple from a couple centuries B.C. were special favorites. And who could forget the 250 million year old preserved tree trunk (it is 28 feet long).
