We (Russia and his sister) went to DC to see the Cherry Blossoms and to our surprise the trees have not blossomed yet. Note to self, the Puffy White stage means there are one or two. I did get a few good shots of early blossoms. In lieu of walking the Tidal Basin, we went to the National Geographic Museum. I have never been. There was a Real Pirate Exhibit and Birds of Paradise Exhibit – very cool! We had lunch at Vapianos before heading back home.
