|An electric eel!|
|Loved this jellyfish art installation.|
|A look back at Inner Harbor.|
For lunch, we ate at this chain called Noodles & Company. Though kinda expensive for noodles, I really liked the concept of the eatery - they sold all types of noodles in different styles - from pad thai to mac cheese to pesto! Apparently there's a few locations here in CA, but none in the bay area.
The next day we took the train from Baltimore to DC. After disembarking at union station, we got our first look at the capitol!
And uh. One floor took us FOUR hours to go through. I like museums. I like to read signs and plaques at museums. It was very clear that there was absolutely no way we'd be able to really see all the museums like I'd hoped we would. We had to pick and choose even the exihibits to see in each museum, and we had to stop reading each and every sign - which I'm still really bummed out about! But I think the only way you could see everything is to live in DC for like, a summer or something.
But in any case, it was a pretty cool museum. The only thing I took issue with was the electric age exhibit - it could have featured more Tesla and less Edison if you ask me! Contrary to commonly held belief, Edison is not the only guy in the electric business. :P (I fully admit to being a Tesla fangirl. If such a thing exists @_@)
|Old school toaster. That's..safe looking.|
|Washington..the roman god?|
|Awesome exhibit on First Ladies. They had all their dresses on display, so pretty!|
|Michelle Obama's famous dress, complete with Jimmy Choos!|
|I had no idea each White House family gets to pick their own china! From the red - Reagan, Clinton, Bush.|
|Stuffed Civil War horse. @_@|
|In the currency section, here's a Pismo clam dollar! Haha!|
|Leg makeup to look like stockings, which were war rationed!|
|WWII propaganda posters..doesn't the one on the right look like Vader?!|
