bodies… just bodies

I’m just having a coffee after seeing the Bodies Exhibition in Barcelona. The exhibition is in Barcelona till January. Last week I was talking with a german friend about the waves that this exhibition made when it first appered. She advised me about the dual nature of it. Half controversy – half science.

You can choose either half, but I think it worth seeing.
Althought is
* not cheap (19 euros)
* not complete – I’ve seen pictures on the internet with bodies that are not here
* not for everybody – I wouldn’t recommend it for a field trip for 4 grade school, but sure I will for any major of age or future wannabe doctor.
* it is not fast to enter – lines can take up hours in the weekend
* not allowed to make photos (these are found on the net)
