A thing we don't have in Greece is yard sales. So, today, I was more than happy to go to a neighborhood called Adams Morgan where there was one. Although the yard sale itself wasn't as impressive as I had expected, the stroll we took in the area more than made up for it. Unfortunately, my cell phone didn't have much space left so I only took a few photos.
There are plenty of places to eat there and all kinds of cuisine, too. Apparently, having brunch is really popular here, so after having ours at Mintwood Place we headed towards Dupont Circle. We were really glad to discover a small but oh, so cute, coffee place called Soho. We'll be definitely going back there! Too bad I didn't take any pictures.
Then we visited the National Museum of American History, but we only spent half an hour there as it closes at 5.30. I hope we'll visit it again tomorrow as the exhibitions are fascinating. To give you a hint, I was looking at the hat Abraham Lincoln was wearing the night he was assassinated when one of the employees told us to "proceed to the nearest exit". I can't wait to go back!
Until then, take a look at this picture:
|this is the counter!|
On February 1, 1960, four African American college students sat down at a lunch counter at Woolworth’s in Greensboro, North Carolina, and politely asked for service. Their request was refused. When asked to leave, they remained in their seats. Their passive resistance and peaceful sit-down demand helped ignite a youth-led movement to challenge racial inequality throughout the South.

That's all for today...
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! :)
