Here are a few photos from a lovely birthday trip to Washington, D.C. Larry and I enjoyed exploring some new places and visiting a few we had never checked out before. We started our day in Chinatown, because neither of us had ever been there before, and we wanted to check out Chinatown Coffee Co. There wasn’t too much to explore in Chinatown, but the coffee was amazing!
We spent the rest of the day wandering around the National Museum of Natural History. (You were allowed to touch this triceratops cast, I swear!)
We also saw an IMAX movie, Flying Monsters 3D. Larry said the caption to this picture should be, “I can haz tiny popcorn?”.
I loved all of the mineral exhibits. These rooms were quiet and empty compared to most others. We stayed here taking pictures until almost closing time.
We tried a few restaurants in D.C. and they were all great! Busboys and Poets was the clear favorite(you get to wander around a little bookstore while you wait for your table), but Comet Ping Pong and Sticky Fingers Bakery were excellent as well. The wait at Comet Ping Pong was long, like their website says, but luckily it’s right down the block from Politics and Prose bookstore.
There were so many fun things we wanted to do, but we ran out of time. Anyone have any recommendations for our next trip?
