The Life Aquatic

Well this is weird.

Walking around the top of Monaco, near the Prince's palace, I discovered an aquarium.
It seemed to be a reasonable aquarium, but not a great one in the modern sense. It was more interesting for the old artifacts and historical pieces it held of past explorations into the sea.
The aquarium itself was fairly ordinary.
Once again, I was confronted with constant reminders of the Monaco royal family.
Apparently they love the sea and this aquarium goes to show just how much they love the sea...
... there was something strangely ridiculous about it all. It reminded me of the Wes Anderson film "The Life Aquatic", and somehow their behaviour and claims seemed to be even more preposterous than those of the characters in the movie.

I needed to leave this silly place.
