Last week I checked out the new WA Museum for the first time. It’s been open for about half a year since they built the new building above some of the original buildings, which is pretty amazing for a nerd like me to wait so long. If you doubt my nerdiness, I did spend a year at my school library at lunch time reading the Encyclopaedia Britannica from A-Z, well there was no internet then.
There’s lots of new displays and old ones as well. WA Museum Boola Bardip | Western Australian Museum. I really enjoyed my visit especially all the exhibits such as dinosaurs, geology, astronomy, history and its free for the rest of the year.
To stop the spread of Covid I had to get my temperature checked ,sign in using the SafeWA App on my phone on the Museum QR code which is compulsory everywhere in WA and also most Australians have a COVIDSafe app on their phone which records where you go and automatically deletes after 2 weeks. I don’t think the freedom loving Americans would put up with all this monitoring but it has meant no virus in the community. We’ve been very successful in eliminating the virus and building a safe gilded cage. The only problem is eventually we’ll have to let non-citizens into the country and even if they’ve been vaccinated the virus will come with them. Most people are happy with us becoming a hermit kingdom however some businesses in tourism and education want the borders open. I think the government will have to make some tough decisions eventually.
Happy crankin everyone.
PS I can guarantee that I’ve never taken a photo of that sunset in the featured photo before too.
