After travelling this long, I am sorry to say, we are becoming somewhat disenchanted with the wonder of all these great buildings, and art, and culture. I can only stay in a state of awe for so long, and then everything tastes the same (even though I am fully aware that it isn't!)
However, sometimes not knowing about something before you see it makes the experience more spectacular. Expectations cannot be disappointed when they haven't yet come into being.
And this door was also very impressive. I was starting to loose my sense of ennui.
And then we got to the dome. Ennui is instantly replaced with Awe, wonder, and as Owen would say "What the crap for crap?!"
The Tourist information says that this dome is perfect in geometric proportions - a perfect sphere contained within a perfect cube. While I can appreciate that, it honestly doesn't make much of a difference to me. But I can tell you that the perfect is perceived. There is order here, and logic.
