... lost a kid for the first minute and a half of the movie. And to think, that could be me someday.
From the theater we ventured over to our mansion tour. The tour was interesting. We stayed in a line, guided through the individual rooms by little barriers.

Driver on towards Washington DC, or at least the outskirts. In our way to Alexandre, we managed to take a wrong turn, only to end up in the Pentagon car park! Narrowly escaping being shot by the security services, we found a motel and settled in for the night.
