D.C. Diversion

My dictionary defines the word Diversion as ' activity that diverts the mind from tedious or serious concerns; a recreation or pastime'.

That's just the ticket I need right now! Actually I've been planning on visiting our nation's capital this Spring ever since I first decided to come to Pittsburgh. My cousin, Paul, lives just outside of Washington D.C. and has graciously agreed to show me the town. So I'm going to hop in MYRDTOY and cruise on over while the cherry trees are still in bloom. I've always wanted to see D.C. and I'm really excited about it. I'm kind of bummed that the Smithsonion American History Museum is closed for renovation until the Fall but I plan to spend a lot of time in the Natural History Museum. And did you know that the Smithsonion has an International Spy Museum? How cool is that!? And, of course, all the monuments on the mall and the others nearby. My camera and I are going to be such tourists!

Ooo, that should be so pretty! Don't they have a big cherry blossom festival in DC?
