Museum

Went to the temporary exhibit on Australia at the Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde. The exhibit features the story of the indigenous Australians and the effect of the arrival of European explorers. A large part was about the stolen generation, featuring documents from early anthropologists and showing parts of the movie Rabbit-Proof Fence. Impressive exhibit, shame it’s only temporarily in place. My parents are going on the Hurtigruten this summer (I’m jealous!), so we also visited the ‘People of the polarcircle’ exhibit, which is on permanent display.

And more rampant consumerism on this very saturday. I ordered the Polar F4 online earlier this week and it was delivered this afternoon. I fear mastering the manuel will take a while, but I’m impressed with the available features.
