Then, we hit the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden which was a fascinating insight into photography (Hiroshi Sugimoto) and modern contemporary art. You should definitely visit Sugimoto's link that I listed to check out his work. I really like his Chrysler Building blur. They are truly thought provoking. There were also a couple of very odd videos. One with tops, and one in an apartment. I like photography, art that has logic and geometry, and Impressionist art. I don't particularly enjoy weird modern art because I don't know how to appreciate it.
Walking makes us really hungry because it works up an appetite. So, as we we hunting for another unique restaraunt in downtown DC, we hit a few stores. We then came upon a pizzeria (Bertucci Brick Oven Pizzeria: Google Maps) that Jessi had noticed before, and decided to eat there. The pizza (Italian version of meat-lover's) and a couple of glasses of Pinot Grigio was delectable. I haven't had decent pizzas for a long time and this appeased that desire.
I have no idea how much we walked today, but I bet it was 7+ miles. We got back completely pooped and still found the wireless non-functional. So, we went to a Starbucks to check email and do all those things we do ;). Jessi watched her first episode of Related, which she really liked. So, we may watch some more when we get back to Coe.
It's 11 am and I am going to sleep because we have to wake up at 6 am tomorrow. So, another long day!
PS: I just realized how much of a liberal Jessi is, and I am a pretty conservative Moderate (if there is such a thing) when it came to financial/economic policies. I love playing Devil's Advocate to get her worked up. Debating is so much of fun. Today, it was Walmart, and abortions..
