National Museum of Natural History

Saturday was rainy (really the only rainy day I had the whole trip), but was ok because spent most of it inside at the Natural History Museum. Lots of really cool stuff in here, I think I enjoyed this more than the Air and Space Museum. When I was done looking around I went to have lunch; there were no free tables so sat down at one where a guy was going to be leaving soon. We started talking (his name was Paul) and offered to keep me company out to Pentagon City and the Pentagon, after he had a look at the Hope Diamond, so did this.
