Museum and Internet Cafe... in Hnjotur
Ever had one of those experiences where you really can't quite bring yourself to believe it really happened? Well this is what the group thought when we arrived at the Folk Museum in Hnjotur. Here we were, in what can best be described as the middle of nowhere, and we came upon such wonders as a partially dismantled US Navy plane, a wholly intact, albeit somewhat damaged, Aeroflot plane (along with an old row boat and Willy's Jeep), an operating theater, an IBM computer disk drive (the size of a washing machine), a couple old coffins, and many, MANY, other wonderous items old and new. Oh, and did I mention that this was also an Internet cafe with good coffee, whale jerky, and trout smoked over (dried) sheep dung? Is it just me, or does this sound like something out of Ripley's Believe It Or Not?!?
