I woke up on October 15, 2012 and Ivan didn’t sleep much the night before. His asthma was really bothering him.
We headed to the Prince Georges mall where I bought a jumper (jacket) at Ross. I thought it would be wise to get a thicker jacket since it’s been getting cold and will probably be colder as we head up towards New York.
Ivan and I got food at Subway.
We dropped off the car at the house since the guy at the house said there’s no parking around the station.
Ivan noticed parking at CVS right near the station that we could have used.
Took the Metro to Metro Center. We walked along the National Mall where we saw the National Monument.
Next, we checked out the Smithsonian Natural History Museum.
We checked out a few different areas of the museum like fossils, mammals and dinosaurs.
Ivan and I each got a nice grilled eggplant sandwich with cheese and sundried tomatoes. Lil Dave got a banana soup.
It’s a really big museum and we didn’t end up seeing everything.
Ivan wanted to do a free walking tour in an hour and a half. The clouds looked gloomy and dark, so it looked like rain. We decided to head back and do a Segway tour tomorrow instead.
Later, we went to dinner at Mark’s Café. Ivan had a vegetarian chili. Lil Dave had a banana noodle dish. Ivan and I each had a great bibimbap with brown rice.
