A quick stop in DC

Consider the blog up-to-date (for now). It’s still Saturday, and I’m going to write about Saturday. But first, Friday.

We arrived at my second-cousin’s apartment in Adams Morgan, and caught up on our blogs. The end.

Ok, not exactly. First we walked around the corner for lunch at a Mediterranean place, having missed breakfast on the train, and then we caught up on our blogs. It was like old times, in separate rooms, sending occasional notes and links via Gmail Chat. For dinner we went out for tapas and mojitos. That was all we did. This very chill day is what inspired the first paragraph of Gumbo with every meal, please.

On Saturday we got up with purpose. We cabbed down to the Lincoln Memorial and hit “the mall”. The weather was just beautiful, blue skies with a few clouds, but not too hot, which made for great walking weather.

First we checked out the dinosaur bones at National Museum of Natural History, and then we surveyed the Renaissance art at the National Gallery of Art. We spent a good deal of time in the Air and Space Museum (paying my respects to a certain orange aircraft), before finishing the tour off at the Capitol building.
