Corwall: the Eden Project

We went to the Eden Project and looked round the domes. Anyone following me would have heard squeals of amazement and delight when I saw the star fruit tree. It went something like: "A star fruit tree! Look, its a star fruit tree. Oh wow, its a tree with star fruit on it! They grow on trees!" I don't know why it appealed to me quite so much, but it was the plant that most I was most interested in.

The domes are quite amazing from an architectual prospective:

View of the vents from the inside...

vents like hexagon patchwork

...and the outside:

vents like flowers
