Month in the Museum

I can’t express how much a dream it would be to live day and night for a month in the museum and explore and report on all the amazing science. And, I would love to make a display of my bicycle and photos and all the discoveries I made while cycling around the world. And, of course, be part of the experiment to see how this experience changes me and everyone I meet. Wish me luck and stay tuned to vote.
