We went to the Natural History Museum and we saw heaps of stuff and if you have any questions ask. This blog is misbehaving and captions are just too hard today.
Phenomenal place. We walked around for hours and saw things like the live butterflies, dinosaur bones, the Hope diamond,
crystals, rock formations, gifts from overseas, a mammal display, egyptian mummies and artifacts. Wonderful stuff.
We then wandered across the “Mall” – a long strip of grass down the centre of Washington- to the air and space museum, another of the 19 Smithsonians around the country.
We had lunch there and there were 3 restaurants combined but I think Macdonalds (Mickey D’s as they call it here) was running the show. Hundreds of tables and chairs – truly amazing.
We caught the red Circulator bus to Union Station where Didi bought some cloth patches for her suitcase. I took some photos too. Beautiful building.
After that we caught the yellow Circulator bus back to our hotel.
The Circulator Bus is a service similar to our CAT buses in Perth only the service costs a dollar per ride but you can go a long way for a dollar. We lept off at 14th and K Streets and found our way for one block back to our hotel.
The dinner we had was at the hotel at their restaurant called Grist Mill.
I did some blogging then bed.
