What a day

  • Walking around the Dupont Circle neighborhood. Good times.
  • Stopped by the National Museum of the American Indian, which has a good collection but a better building.
  • Fulfilled a long-standing agenda item, going to the National Botanical Garden--one of the few buildings subject to the Architect of the Capitol.
  • Was a visitor at the new Capitol Visitors' Center. Cost overruns or no, it seems very well done. (Told that a certain line was where they took walk-up tours of the Capitol, it was all I could do to refrain from saying "I used to give tours here!")
  • Dumbarton Oaks unfortunately closes at 5 p.m., which left me with precious little time to see their stunningly great collection. Stop by sometime if you're in the area.
  • Washington Nationals baseball game with Bob and Adam (and Stephanie, kind of). When they're not playing the Pirates (as they were earlier this week), I guess I'm a Nats fan!
Tomorrow (demain): To France!
