The Weekenders

I took this past Friday off to make up for the long hours and the weekend I worked. We went into the city and had a great time. In the morning, we hit the National Gallery of Art to see the Quest for Immortality exhibit. Though it was a bit too crowded for my tastes, it really was an excellent exhibit with a lot of excellent artifacts. There was a great mix of large-scale and small-scale items and I think it was organized fairly well. The highlight of the exhibit was the reconstruction of the burial chamber of Thutmose III. Just breathtaking to walk into a room like that.

Afterwards, we went to the new International Spy Museum. I'm so used to going to free museums in DC that it was kind of odd actually paying for a museum again. But it was worth it. Though we spent over 2 hours in there, we could've stayed for much longer. There is just a LOT of stuff in there and it's all interesting. Though I sometimes questioned the way it was organized, it's a fine museum and I think everyone should go if they get the chance.

Other than that, I spent more than I should've at the CD Cellar in Leesburg and the one in Falls Church. But at least now I only need one more stamp to get a free CD. Yay!
