Images of a day in town

The toddler in front of the posh hotel, on 16th street, 100 meters from the White House, pants down, peeing in the flower pot. His dad was standing next to him, the doors of a SUV opened right beside them. Incongruous image in a posh neighborhood

The french kid at the museum who was bored and kept telling his dad that he wanted to go upstairs. "Je veux aller la-haut! Je veux aller la-haut". The dad kept dragging him in rooms filled with French impressionists paintings.

The guy in the line for the movie who started talking to us about the different gardens to visit around DC. I think he though we were tourists.

He was peeing in front of the Hay-Adams? Whoa!

Upstairs is indeed more interesting at the East Wing. The kid probably studied the paintings in school anyway, right?

Most Washingtonians don't know about the different gardens to visit around D.C. If the fellow thought you were a French tourist and knew about the gardens one can experience in Europe, he probably wouldn't have bothered to mention the D.C.-area ones.

No paintings study in France for young kids (he must have been no more than 6 or 7 years old). He was just bored while his dad kept dragging him around...

For the gardens -- I agree that was kind of a strange suggestion. Probably why I remembered it.
Gardens/parks around DC can be very nice. A different style from France but people tend to care for their gardens much better here. The town looks a lot "greener" than Paris say...
