Washington, DC — Thursday, June 3

We stayed at the Irish-owned historic Phoenix Park Hotel, just a couple of blocks from the capitol.
We started our morning with an Irish Country Breakfast, including Irish soda bread toast, and a strong cup of delicious Bewley's tea.  While GJ was in meetings, AJ and I visited the Smithsonian Postal Museum just across from the hotel.  We learned a lot of interesting facts about the history of the  postal service in the USA.  We each climbed aboard a stagecoach.  Thank goodness we didn't have to travel that way on our journey to D.C.  And, fortunately AJ didn't have the camera to take a photo of me climbing in a out of the stagecoach.
Later in the day we visited the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. 
 After a late dinner we walked around the capitol.
We enjoyed a delightful afternoon tea this afternoon.  I will post the details next.
