I had two nights to fill in between the cat sit and visiting my good friend Wilma, so I decided to "couch surf" at Isabel's, who very nicely had accepted to host me for two nights.
It is always a wonderful experience, to meet people like that!
She told me, "any time you want but not before 6 pm". It was saturday, so I thought, she has very busy saturdays! In fact she had thought I came on a weekday and of course then she works. So, ...
Immediately upon arrival late yesterday Jon felt a sense of unease. Somehow one expects perfection in the Capitol of The Greatest Country on Earth, doesn't one?

Oh my goodness three little school girls just stopped to look at us and Craig is talking to them about the cows going by to the pasture with their Shepherd..
OK, well the baptism... Theodo is four months ...
... Hope Diamond, which is the largest diamond found, it is a dark blue. They have it in a case on a pedestal that rotates to allow everyone to view it. It was very crowded and quite popular. We went to explore the butterfly house, but that exhibit required you to pay for a ticket, and from the outside didn't look worth it. We spent about two hours here, but it barely scratched the surface of what there was to see. It is hard to pick anything to see in the 4 or so hours, as there are ...
