DC sight-seeing

The overnight bus ride was uneventful. That is good news. And I need to remind myself that I can no longer do that at my age. I need proper rest.

Washington DC is clean and thus far, we quite like the place. The highlight of this trip is to visit the various museums at National Mall, not forgetting the White House (nope, we didn’t get to go in).

       

We quite like the Holocaust Museum from which we learnt more about how propaganda led to anti-semitism. For me, I got the chance to visit the Julia Child exhibition at National Museum of American History; it’s actually the reason why I wanted to visit DC.

I like this quote which describes Paul Child: Paul Child, the man who is always

there: porter, dishwasher, official photographer, mushroom dicer and onion chopper, editor, fish illustrator, manager, taster, idea man, resident poet, and husband.

Sounds like Ken to me! Except that he’s not good with slicing mushrooms and onions =p

We didn’t manage to visit more museums because we were tired from too much walking and a lack of rest. More tomorrow!

We did have a wonderful host and a very comfortable loft; it’s indeed a good deal. Thank God. The host made us feel so welcome and provided refreshment like that of the hotel’s.

The neighbourhood where we stay.

Dinner was at this recommended chinese place – Chinatown express – for their homemade noodles, duck and steamed buns. We thought they could have been better but still an affordable meal after all.
