Washington DC, United States - 16th March 2008

By: wmphimu

Our first stop in Washington DC was for lunch! We went to Chinatown - here I am at the Chinatown arch!
After lunch, we were ready to go to the museum!

Our destination for the day was the National Portrait Gallery, which is part of the Smithsonian. I explained to Calixte & Resi that lots of people think that the Smithsonian is one big museum, but it is actually LOTS of big museums! This one is all art. It also has a very beautiful atrium that has been in the paper a lot. So we stopped there first.
We looked the gallery of portraits of American presidents. I liked this very famous one of George Washington
And we all liked this sculpture of bears!
The biggest excitement of the day was a very strange portrait of Stephen Colbert, a popular tv show host. We watch his show every night - he does a political satire show, and as a joke he tried to get the portrait of himself from his set put in the Smithsonian, and they hung it up here, at the entrance to the bathroom! The funniest thing was how many people were in line to get their picture taken with it! I waited too - so here I am with Stephen Colbert!
