Well, Elizabeth and I had a fun, long day yesterday in DC. We got all our must-see locations seen...the zoo, Union Station for lunch, the American History museum, the Holocaust museum, and the Washington and Lincoln monuments. It was a great day...we had great weather the whole day, and the crowds weren't too bad. We'll try to post some pictures later to share our day with you. Among items of interest in the day:
-I had the Great Steak Sub from "The Great Steak and Potato" in Union Station with onions, green peppers, cheese and mustard, plus half of Elizabeth's steak salad. I was hungry.
-A woman named Adele who gave some convoluted story and claimed to be a federal employee who had gotten into a car wreck tried to con us out of $40.
-Washington has a lot of big buildings.
-Hippos can hold their breath underwater for 6 minutes.
-It's a loooong walk from the Holocaust Museum to the Lincoln Memorial.
-I had a triple combo and a double combo at Wendy's when we left. I was hungry again.
-We arrived back at the house at 2 am, 21 hours after we had woken up. A full, fun day!
