沙漠里的赤裸裸Virginia Capitol. The Virginia Capitol has been open since 1785 and was designed by Thomas Jefferson and others. To commemorate the victory of the American War of Independence, Jefferson ordered the French architect Charles to replicate the building in Richmond in the shape of a 16th-century Roman temple in southern France. The original design model is now displayed inside the building, and visitors can come and go as they please. However, due to the late arrival, we missed the final admission time at 4 o’clock. We could only see the beauty outside. However, the entire Parliament Building Square was still quite open, and the surrounding buildings and scenery were also good. It’s worth walking around for an hour and visiting

淼淼0301This should be the largest museum in South Africa. Coming here gives me a different feeling. This museum is very admirable both in terms of size and number of collections. There are many cultural relics in it. I like it very much. Here.

137***66The museum has a large collection of items related to the Boer War. There are many big paintings, and when you consider that there are also women and children there, one of the Boers nailed to the banks of the Maud River under the attack of the British is very touching. Of course, this led to General Krone’s surrender at the Battle of Paderberg. Prisoners of war captured in overseas camps have a large number of handicrafts, including St. Helena, Ceylon, India and Bermuda, as well as handicrafts made in camps in South Africa. The Women’s Monument depicts two women, one of whom is holding a baby. This is very unforgettable because the ashes of the British woman Emily Hobhouse were buried there. She helped people who suffered in the war A lot of work has been done. Recently, a long wall was added with the names of women and children who were burned to death in concentration camps during the British Scorched Earth Policy. At that time, the farm was burned down and the women and children were placed in the concentration camps. There was almost no fresh water or medical care. It was unforgettable! Of course, this does not represent the "best period" of British history!
