Heading off from Boston in the morning, we got the metro all the way to the terminal door. The airline was quick to check us in and get on the plane. Although, we chose to move seats so we were more comfortable and not on an exit. Things got lively when a bunch of air force guys sat behind us. They were a good group though.

... I could have packed all of the clothes in 20 minutes, but I have to give her credit for pulling it off even while I was watching her pick out outfits for the girls grumbling about her need for extreme organization and having to leave soon. I will let you know how it works out later on... Made it to the airport on time and through security in less than 5 minutes. Somehow we skipped in front of 100 or so folks in the security ...
... was another tribe and there is no familial relation. I say this though because already this trip we have bumped into others of her family and childhood friends and she teases me about defining 1st cousins, 2nd cousins, 1, 2, 3 time removed and she just calls them all cousins.
Dinner at BJ's, servers name was Tekilla? Tequila? Walked back to the hotel.

Anyway, back to the museum. We enjoyed ourselves for about 1.5 hours there. Upon leaving, we commented that the collection was not as amazing as we had expected - after all, this is the Smithsonian! The original Star Spangled Banner was amazing to see - never realised how BIG it is. The Little Golden Book exhibit was tons of fun for me (Will sat on a bench). But the other collections - were relatively uninspiring. A lot of random artifacts with no major historical ...

When the cab driver doesn't even want to take you to a hotel, it's a concern. Got into the room and it was clean and the bed comfortable. Went for dinner, came back to 8 cop cars in the car park and the lobby blocked off. While it's one of the cheaper places to stay, it's not convenient to public transport and is in a seedy area. If staying here, I would recommend cabbing it to Union station. Overall though, it wasn't too bad provided you keep the doors locked and stay alert to any possible dangers.
