The nexd day we
went over to my brothers place for a BBQ.
We were joined there by Shane,
Teresa, and their kids to.
The day after that it was time to
go. The train for California left at 4 PM, so before that we had
time to take in another museum. This time we took in the American
Indian museum. It was also great. It devoted a lot of space to
treaties broken and kept, and how those "agreements" led from
those days to these. Virginia said "I had no idea there were so
many different stories in this country." On the way out we stopped
in the gift shop. These were the souvineers we got there.
The fine print on the back of the
chocolate explains that the Myans first cultivated chocolate, and
that this modern chocolate is the only one produced by Native
Americans for your everyday indulgance. Tastes and smells
delicious. The book is a great read. I managed to get to page 40
before the trains got us home.
Our last stop in
Washington was at Lafayette Park, across the street from the White
House. Glad to report there is still a peace vigil there.
