From my kids accomplishments, to my heretical perspective of the world

Washington DC

Not much to say about a city that everyone except Gisele and I have been to before. White House, Capitol, Smithsonian, Memorials, …

We chose this time to come so we could see the cherry blossoms, and there are quite a few around, but otherwise it’s a bad time. Lots of other people also want to see the cherry blossoms, and lots of kids are on spring break. It took us about a half hour to get into the Air and Space museum today, and it was wall to wall people. Still worth the visit, of course.

Our hotel is kind of interesting, I guess. It’s on the “National Trust for Historic Preservation” list of “Historic Hotels of America”, one of 260. Built in 1929, it’s hardly ancient, but it is quaint and is clean and neat. It’s on Pennsylvania Avenue, about a 10 minute walk from the White House, so it’s in a convenient location.

We did a lot of walking on the first day, but have since got smart and have used the Metro a lot more. There is a station about 5 minutes from our hotel.

Dale wanted me to talk about weird people, but unfortunately we haven’t met any. I’ll keep my eye open for one, just for you Dale.

Maybe Library of Congress tomorrow…?

    How come I meet all the weird people? Maybe I’m the weird one and everyone else is just normal.

    An interesting recap. The two times I’ve been in DC were not in the spring, so I’ve never seen the cherry blossoms. Are you going to make it to the Museum of American History? That’s my favorite. How about the Newseum? I’d like to go there sometime.

    If you walk down Pennsylvania about 10 minutes you could probably find a “weird person”.

    😀 😉

    Thank you tor saying 1929 is not ancient. That made my spirits rise indominately.
