May 17, 2010 Washington DC

We took the tunnel from the Library of Congress to the Capitol Visitor’s Center for a private tour of the Capitol with Senator Harkin’s aide. It was nice to bypass the lines and actually be able to hear what the guide was saying. I highly recommend contacting your Congressman for a tour as opposed to a group tour. We listened to the Senate debate the Greece economic bailout for a while and the President of Mexico walked past us.

We spent the rest of our day at the Air and Space Museum, which was open until 7pm tonight. It was fairly quiet and we had a lot of exhibits to ourselves. The museum was fun, the exhibits were easy to follow, and the displays covered everything from the Wright Brothers to the Space Shuttle.
