I don’t like to swim and like to just look at the ocean, but am a huge admirer of the late Jacques Cousteau. And so it was that I was excited to go to the Oceanic Museum in Monaco, where he had served 31 years as the museum’s director. Surely, there would be a wing or exhibit dedicated to him……rien, zilch, nada, zero!
The internet makes reference to the ‘Cousteau Aquarium,” but I didn’t see his name anywhere in the museum and couldn’t figure out why. I was disappointed and well….. angry that he had been, seemingly, forgotten. As I walked around the aquarium, looking at all the exotic fish and sea creatures, I certainly didn’t forget to think of Cousteau and the Calypso!
