Just another rainy day

Something is just not right – the more you’re longing for a weekend the more chances it won’t come about the way you covet it.  Thanks God every cloud has a sliver lining so we stopped whining to no purpose and bent our steps toward the Museum of Paleontology, a place I’ve been to only once and it was long time ago and, frankly speaking, never thought about coming there again, very unwise, but since my son is yet to discover the outward things it was the best choice of the Saturday’s morning. 

At 9 a.m. almost no traffic, so we happily reached the place in less than 40 minutes, bought the tickets and traveled hundreds of millions years back into the past. Very ineffable fillings. Old bones, fossils, mammoths’ and dinosaurs’ models just in a second made our “the hub of the universe” like behavior fallacious. Thrilling… But of course not for my boy who is capable to turn any place into a playground and tune it up to his child’s vision of the world. 
The rest of the day, after we made a short brake, was no less interesting and cognitive for we went to Moscow aquarium and spent some time there admiring the underwater world: morays, jelly fish, turtles, king crabs, sharks, etc. etc. etc. It’s not one of the world-class huge ocean aquariums but a cramped basement where home fish hobbyist could purchase stuff for their fish bowls whilst the rest just admire numerous kinds of underwater elements. That’s why I found this place a bit overpriced but still it’s the best one in Moscow region.
