Washington, DC

Saturday June 4
Walked around the Holocaust Museum.  For dinner tried Sala Thai on U Street ( The atmosphere was trend but the food was only OK.  Then had ice cream at U-Scream Ice Cream & Treatery

Sunday June 5
Went on a couple tours at the National gallery of Art West Building.  (
Dinner at Sorrio Restaurant (  They had VERY thin crust pizza. Food was average but they had outdoor seating and even a little balcony with two tables upstairs and it was a beautiful night out.   Then for desert walked to Frozenyo ( for some self serve yogurt from a franchized chain that I had never been tried. I was surprised the recently opened National Aquarium charged an admission fee as most of the National Museums are free and decided to pass as it was close to closing time. 

I was in DC in May
We walked around the National gallery of Art Sculpture park which I had walked around the last time in was in DC for work.  My favorite museum on these two short excursions to DC this past month was the National Museum of American History ( which had Julia Childs Kitchen and the first ladies dress collection. We also stopped by a few exhibits at the National Museum of Natural History ( and the National Archives (  As well I walked by the war memorial again. I also went on a tour of the mint (, the last time I went on a tour was when I was in 8th grade.
