Sightseeing and more.
Here's photo from inside the huge Air and Space Museum.
The Capitol building was just so picture perfect. My photo looks like a postcard, right? To bad it was so hot that we felt like we were getting heat stroke! We tried to stay indoors for a long time.
National Museum of American Indians, which is a gorgeous building, with fabulous exhibits. We spent a very long time there and learned a lot, plus we ate lunch there, as there's interesting food choices based on various native foods. Lots of vegetarian choices!
Virginia State Capitol building, which was designed by Thomas Jefferson. We took a tour, actually 2, We caught the end of one, and then picked up the start of another, and we learned a lot. This is a sculpture of George Washington, done from life and life sized.
tres leches cakes and quite delicious. We danced a lot, which was fun. AND no one called the police on us. Possibly because all the neighbors were there. Who's left to complain?
Police Memorial in D.C. I think maybe people sit out there at lunch time and share with the squirrels. It was quite used to people.
