We waited in line with the other People* at the National Archives to see the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence thus completing our Team America refection montage recreation. The National Museum was a fun place to visit - the aptly and affectionally dubbed “Nation’s Attic” sports such pieces as Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers, the original Muppets, the first Van Der Graph machine, Abe Lincoln’s Hat and the robe of a supreme court judge worn at the impeachment case of President Clinton.
The afternoon was spent back with our host family, where Heather gave Gav and Paul a lesson in baking Pie - we made sweet potato pie as well as pumpkin to settle which is better - extensive taste tests pointed to a slight lean to the sweet potato pie. Then we went to the Jews Place…
