Museum Madness, Part Two
I’ve left you hanging for quite a while! Last I wrote, I was in the middle of a Museum “Walk-A-Thon”, and I was already starting to feel it! Lets pick up where we left off:
Susie and I decided to grab a “quick” lunch at a Mediterranean place called Roti. It came highly recommended from her brother and sister-in-law, who are world travelers (they’ve lived in Australia, Korea, AND Italy…), so we thought, why not?
20 minutes later I was having flashbacks to my last ill-fated lunch escapade in New York. We were lost. You see, everything in D.C. is hidden:
Government secrets and restaurants alike are tucked into nondescript office buildings, leaving you to wander aimlessly around the nearly identical buildings.
We eventually found it with some careful phone directions, only to discover it was closed – Just our luck!
We settled for Chipotle (not a bad exchange!), and moved on to our next stop:
4. National Air and Space Museum
The day finally caught up with us, and we chose to view exhibits from the safety of a bench…
There was so much more, like this scale model of the planets that captured my fancy:
I was literally limping out of this one, but we still had one more stop:
5. National Museum of American History
And with that, our day of museum-ing was over. On our
walk limp back to the car, I snapped pictures of buildings I couldn’t even remember:
I literally felt as though they had been worn down to nubs, and it was glorious.
