I don’t like museums. They only whet appetite, but don’t take me closer to the truth. I don’t know if the writers hired to write lengthy descriptions are historians, or just good content-writers. Travel guides gain expertise in the art of storytelling.
I unpeel layers of a story cooked up in an ancient pan, written on a slate in unfamiliar scripts and transformed over a period of time. I need to reach the core, but have to spend a lot of time battling the layers of vested interests, gossip and blind faith.
