This visit was for a workshop for the IMLS grant that I administer at UNT. IMLS put us up in the Hay Adams hotel -- across Lafayette Park from the White House. It's a very fancy hotel.
The view from the front of the hotel toward the Washington monument is pretty nice. I may have to print that picture for my wall.
The hotel is very nice, but the room they put me in is so small, I have to go outside to change my mind (rim shot).
|I attended St. John's Episcopal church Sunday morning. It's right across the street. I understand President Bush attends there some Sunday mornings. We sat just behind the "President's Pew."|
|Of course, I had to go to the zoo the first afternoon I was there. And, here's one of the pandas -- this is the female (I know because her mouth is open!).
They had some panda statues around the zoo too. Below are two of them.
|This was the best that I've seen any of the Red Panda's. I don't think he liked me watching him eat, though.|
|A few of the other animals I saw were a camel, seal and wolf. I don't like the way he was looking at me -- kind of like "dinner".|
|Many of their trees were showing off their color, so I had to take this picture.|
|Finally, the baby elephant was playing around, but he got his foot stuck in the tire. He was fun to watch getting un-stuck.|
