Where I stayed
We started off by going to the L. Ron Hubbard Museum. L Ron Hubbard was the founder of Scientology and this was where the first ever office was. We got inside the house and were greeted by a woman who asked us if we wanted a tour. We replied that we wanted to and she disappeared only for a man to appear and ask us if we wanted a tour again. A fairly bizarre set of events. This man took us for a tour, was a Scientologist, certainly a true believer. His responses to our questions were mostly gibberish but he certainly wasn’t aggressive towards us as most are when their religion is questioned. Hubbard is treated as a God-like figure who speak many languages and had ideas that basically improved the thoughts of Sigmund Freud
After the museum we went shopping, mainly for books. We have so many books now that it’s becoming too much for our suitcases. I also got a nice t-shirt, which I am sure will please Sharyn G.
That night we did something that was very unique. We watched the movie 'Night at the Museum 2’, which is a movie that is based in the Smithsonian Institute which we’d pretty much seen the past few days. In addition to that we were watching the movie at the Air and Space Museum, so after we saw the movie and the exhibits come to life we could then see those very same exhibits in real life. It’s hard to explain the experience but it certainly was very unique.
Tomorrow we are off to the Big Apple.
