December 2, 2007 - Washington, D.C.

Eryn and Graham are fantastic tour guides. After treating us to a tasty waffle breakfast, we headed out on a tour of their neighborhood, that lead to an urban hike along the C&O Canal tow path to Foggy Bottom. From there we hopped on a Metro to Eastern Market, arriving just as the rain did. From there we walked past the Library of Congress and onto the Mall. We visited the Botanical Gardens, then moved onto the Native American Museum in time for a late lunch at the cafeteria. It is the first time that we've had wild rice or buffalo chili at a museum cafe. From there we moved onto the Air and Space Museum, where many things had changed since either of us last visited the museum (sometime in the 80's). There are now decommissioned nuclear weapons on display. We were both really interested in the exhibits that showcased GPS and Iridium satellite communication technology, which are both near and dear to our hearts. After a rousing game of Blokus back at their house, during which Eryn made good on the earlier signs of her skill at the game, we headed to Comet for pizza and ping pong.
