Mrs. AOW, The Beak, and I had a GREAT time on Saturday, March 31! The Beak came with gifts for me: a movie poster and a glossy still photo from Harvey, my favorite movie.
We went to this museum in Washington, D.C.:
Another view of the museum:
The architects of this museum really did create a wonderful building!
I wanted to go to this museum because they had this special exhibit in town for a few months:
Press release about the exhibit we went to see. That VW is covered with TWO MILLION beads!
One of the best things about the National Museum of the American Indian is the Mitsitam Cafe. Check out the information about that cafeteria! The Beak had venison sausage and a buffalo burger. Mrs. AOW and I had maple-brined turkey with cherry sauce, watercress salad with wild rice, and beets with apples and candied walnuts -- all Native American Indian foods from the Eastern Woodlands tribes.
After we spent all day at the museum, the paratransit driver allowed The Beak to ride back to our house with us so that he could relax here at our house before catching the subway back into D.C., then the train to NYC.
This outing was our best trip since I had my stroke in September 2009. I can manage my scooter just fine, and that gives Mrs. AOW a break. On the big concrete platform outside the museum, I got to spend some time speeding around on my scooter and turning donuts. Freedom!
