Wow.. What a visit back in time. I was struck by the idea that much of history and art of mankind is marked by attempts at immortality outside of God. We were meant to live forever. The bible says eternity is written on our hearts. 

lost-cityHow do you loose a city ? An entire culture?  These ruins were discovered. Looks a bit Roman.. but they had their own language that is completely untranslatable. When God wants you forgotten.. your forgotten..

BTW.. Rob could be a museum guide on the side..

    I’m sure you ohhed at the Rosetta Stone! I did!
    Did they still have the huge Ron Mueck head on display? I ended up going back a 2nd day because there was just way too much to see in one day! Glad you got a big of “downtime” while on your trip.
