Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Hot & Humid

Posted on: July 14, 2006

Its not like I didn’t know if was going to be hot and humid here, and it wasn’t even that bad compared to what it could have been, but I really really don’t miss living here in the summer. Its was a very nice day though — we met up with Hila and Amit at their hotel and grabbed some coffee before walking down to the Mall. We picked Betty up at her super fabulous internship at The Castle and popped over to the newly reopened National Portrait Gallery where we were thinking of having lunch with John, who turns out to work right across the street. The cafe was small though, so John took us to a fantastic tapas restaurant a couple of blocks away which was scrumptious. Then we let him go back to work and we went back to the Mall and spent the afternoon at the Museum of Natural History where we saw the 3D IMAX movie Aliens from the Deep (which unfortunately put Hila and I to sleep). Then we walked through the outdoor sculpture gallery, walked over to the reflecting pool and up to Dupont Circle where I thought we could see a movie but forgot that it was the arts house and we were set on Pirates. So we cabbed over to Georgetown and caught the movie, which I enjoyed but I think the general consensus was that the cliff hanger left everyone pretty disastisfied. Tomorrow the zoo to see the baby panda…
