Washington, D.C.

On this trip to Washington, D.C. we did not spend a lot of time exploring the museums and monuments as there were too many tourists there trying to do the same thing. We need to go back there at a later time when there are not so many tourists.

Around downtown and the National Mall

Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

There are a lot of opportunities to learn about the natural history of our world here; however, this museum was so crowded with tourists that we ended up not enjoying it at all. We hope to have a better experience the next time we visit it.

Smithsonian National Museum of American History

We had a much better experience here but didn’t have enough time to see all the exhibits. We were there with many young families and I kept hearing the mothers quizzing their children about American history as they viewed the exhibits. They must be home-schooling moms.

Smithsonian National Museum of Asian Art

Some of the exhibits here were tremendously enjoyable to behold. We feel that the star exhibits are the peacock room and Tibetan prayer room.

One evening at the townhome, we looked around on youtube and found a spectacular documentary about the history and architecture of Washington D.C. made by the National Civic Art Society. We all thoroughly enjoyed watching it.

Thank you for reading! We hope everyone is having a good summer.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
