Mark’s Museum

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.


Vegan Pitch

Ivan and I had breakfast with David and Ruth on October 14, 2012.  We talked about traveling and Chapel Hill.

We left at 11:30 am headed to Maryland.  We stopped at a fish restaurant for lunch.

It was a long drive and we arrived in Takoma Park in Maryland.  We booked a stay at a community house. 

Ryan showed us around.  He looks like the hippie teacher in the tv show Beavis & Butthead. 

It was time for dinner which was vegetarian and vegan.  The food wasn’t too exciting since it didn’t have much flavor from the lack of spices.

Later that night, Ivan and I drove to the theatre nearby.  We grabbed some frozen yogurt and fruit and watched the entertaining movie Pitch Perfect.  It’s about competing college a cappella groups.
