Travel - Washington Dc.
On Wednesday, we started out with the American History Museum. My favorite exhibit of the week was the Star Spangled Banner exhibit. Amazing.
Learning our lesson from Tuesday, we made sure we hit one of the cafes in the museum for lunch.
We trucked down Constitution Avenue to the National Gallery of Art [photoblog.com]. The West Wing contains all of the classical works and the works of the masters.
Once we were tired of art, we caught a cab and went down to the Vietnam War Memorial [photoblog.com] (and adjacent Lincoln Memorial [photoblog.com]).
Later, Stephanie and I met up with my college buddy, Mark Pesavento, for dinner. It was great to see and catch up with Pez and (after dinner) his wife, Meaghan!
