Friends from our community on Lake Winnipesaukee arrived in DC this week to help with the installation of One Million Bones on The National Mall. One Million Bones is an art installation to bring awareness to genocide around the globe. Bob and I arrived to see the exhibit just as they finished laying down the handcrafted bones along two city blocks starting at the base of the reflecting pool in front of the US Capitol. Shortly after we arrived the four of us went to The National Gallery so they could cool down and eat lunch followed by a walk over to the Sachler Gallery of Asian Art and the Freer Gallery.
Back at the Air and Space Museum we picked up our car from the underground parking lot and headed out-of-town to see the 911 Memorial at the Pentagon. Since everyone was hot, thirsty and tired of walking we headed down the parkway towards Mount Vernon and then back to Old Town Alexandria for dinner outside at La Madeline before returning them to their hotel at Dupont Circle. We had a good time.
