Yesterday afternoon we checked another thing off our "do before leaving Munich" list. We went to the Deutsches Museum, which is full of actual planes, boats, submarines, space craft, etc. You could actually climb into a lot of them. I would have loved it as a child.
Maybe it's because I'm a little stressed in general but I was thoroughly depressed by the time I left for several reasons. Here are just a few:
1. My kids won't be going/didn't go on field trips to anything like this from Justice/McCullough, or Marion High School.
2. The vast majority of American kids don't care about this sort of stuff... meaning America has no future in the world.
3. The accumulated knowledge this museum represents is way beyond anything I know... and I mean pick any point in time from some 1800 ship to the 1960 jet to the 1980's space craft.
Just thought I'd cheer everyone up on a Monday morning. ;-)
