The walk did not happen, but food and a nap did. Both made me feel a little more alive so I spent a little time planning a walking adventure for tomorrow.
I think I feel up to it. I do right now anyway. But, it is supposed to rain tomorrow, so I might end up driving or taking the metro to where I need to go. On the top of my list is going to the American Art Museum, because, as many time as I've visited and or drive through DC, I've never visited any of the national galleries. They currently have an exhibition up about birds in contemporary art which I am very much looking forward to seeing, especially since I had my students last semester doing artwork about birds.
Other than that I just want to take in the sites.
I've noticed a couple things about DC. First, the roads are terrible. For as bumpy as they can be, they might as well be gravel. Second, there is so much chlorine in the water ( and maybe it's just the hotel) that it smells like I've spent way too much time in a pool. Lastly, everything is much more expensive than back home. I anticipated the higher prices, but I find the fact that gas is more than a dollar more expensive here than it is in NC a little ridiculous.
And now, it's time for me to go back to bed I think.
