We decided to stay at Krieger's house for another day and night.  We went in to DC again today and went to the Newseum. Krieger had suggested it and it was a really good time. We spent like 5 hours there. 

There was a really interesting exhibit on the FBI through the years and all the major criminals they have apprehended over the years. Some other major things we saw was a section of the Berlin Wall, an exhibit on 9/11, an exhibit on Elvis and a collection of all the Pulitzer Prize photographs.

It was really interesting and we didn't even get to everything in the museum. When we were leave we also saw Wolfgang Puck. I snuck a picture of him from the outside.

After the newseum we headed to Gordon Biersch for dinner. On the way to dinner we stumbled on to Ford's Theater. 

Tomorrow we are heading to Charlottesville, VA to check out Monticello. We will be heading to Virginia Beach on Friday.

Yeah I thought it was a pretty awesome picture too. Wolfgang has a restaurant that is below the Newseum so I think he was there for that. It was around 5pm when we saw him and he didn't seem to be in any rush to make dinner. But maybe he was. It would be cool if he was.
