DC in DC: Tuesday

A lazier day.  After the huge Cuban meal on Monday, I slept in on Tuesday.

Since the National Geographic headquarters and museum is two blocks away, I spent some time Tuesday at their museum, with a current exhibition of Queens of Egypt. Then I went ‘round to the Omani cultural center and spent some time talking about their culture with Omani nationals who were presenting an “Islam in Oman” exhibit.  I learned some things today.

Dinner was at The Pig, a pork-centric restaurant near my hotel.  The meal was fabulous!

Queens of Egypt:

Surrounded by ancient Egyptian sarcophagi (not pictured).

And then an ancient Koran at the Omani center.  I mean . . . look at this beauty!:

Lunch of chicken shawarma a was at a food truck near the hotel:
