Greetings from the National Mall

After breakfast and the Daniel Radcliffe episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, I went downtown with Paul and Cheryl to the National Gallery of Art's The Life of Animals in Japanese Art, which has spectacular scrolls, kimonos, sculptures, and some of the legends that inspired them, including a couple that made me understand where certain Pokemon and their evolution come from. We also went to see Hahn/Cock, the enormous blue rooster on the upper deck, and By the Light of the Silvery Moon, a history of lunar photography leading up to Apollo 11.

Then we walked to the National Museum of American History, stopping for ice cream along the way, to see the Batmobile and Marvel and DC displays downstairs and the Wizard of Oz and collection highlights upstairs. Now Cheryl is on her way home and Paul and I are watching Russell Crowe be terrifying in The Loudest Voice after an episode of Burden of Truth. Tomorrow I'll catch up on email, uploading photos, cleaning the house, etc.!
