Time Capsule – April 22

Posted in Time Capsule on April 22nd, 2014 by Aurora

Neanderthals are named after the Neander Valley in Germany where an early (but, I believe, not the first) “neanderthal” was found.  As I was majoring in Anthropology at the time, of course, we had to make the trek.

Neanderthal!

This is a statue outside the museum.

I love this crocus photo, even if the focus is a bit off. (The fly is a bit blurry.)

Time Capsule – April 20

Posted in Time Capsule on April 20th, 2014 by Aurora

Of all the sites we visited in “Normandy” (using a very broad definition of that area here), Hill 62 (and the entire Ypres region) was my favourite.  We seemed to get a better understanding of the conditions at the time, especially here at Hill 62.

Trench Warfare
The Canadian trenches at Hill 62 in the Ypres region.

In April, 2001, we took a trip to Normandy.  Before we started the military portion of the trip, we made a few stops to see Versailles, as well as the Bayeaux Tapestry.  Expect a lot of war-related photos in the next couple of days.
