D.C. visit part II

On Tuesday, Alex worked in the morning and then we did our trek to downtown D.C. again. I really wanted to visit the National Museum of the American Indian so that's where we headed first!

The outside is unique and beautiful!

Inside, we headed for the food. They have cuisine based on many of the tribes of the United States and I was excited to try it.
Unfortunately, we got there at about 1 p.m. and 3 of the stations were closed and the other stations had a smattering of food available, and workers who were not very willing to serve. They close at 2 p.m. and apparently after the lunch rush they start packing up shop!

We decided to head somewhere else for lunch.

We headed up Independence Avenue for Pennsylvania. I really did not realize how much of a trek this was going to be, and hooooooo!!! It was a whole mile uphill! We were both exhausted by the time we got to Good Stuff Eatery. 

I had a Famhouse Burger while Alex went for the Prez Obama burger:

They were both okay, and I didn't care for the fries... so our trek was quite a waste. Until... I had the grand idea to stop at Firehook bakery for dessert.

We shared a monster cookie and each had a hot apple cider. YES!

Our trek back was cold, but nice since it was DOWNHILL! We took a slight detour to get close to the Capitol building.

We saw Marine One fly overhead! (Maybe)

Then headed back to the National Museum of the American Indian to actually see the exhibit.

Old newspapers about General Custer's Last Stand.

There was a room filllllled with things that use Native Americans as part of their logo or design or advertisement... we see them so often we don't even notice!

Of course, the Indian shooting the star from Tootsie Pops!

Cute owls...

Crazy beadwork.

Cool horse gear.

 I should've taken more pictures! The inside architecture was very cool. I really liked this museum, except for the food service closing early thing.

Alex and I made our sojourn back to Mt. Airy. The metro was inundated with Fallout 76 advertisements, which did their job and made me want to get it, but I haven't even played Fallout 4 yet and Alex advised to wait for the bugs to get ironed out in 76.
