The museum has pottery from the Neolithic era, weapons from across time, and some of the terra cotta warriors we are seeing on Friday.

We also learned that Andrew and Matt are terrible drivers, and that John needs more practice backing up! (Maryland drivers, you've been warned!) Some people went boating, some rode elephants, and everyone laughed--a lot. A banner day. Emilia is going to give you the details. Be sure to check out the pictures!
