Still recovering from Ping Pong dim sum, we went to Acadiana for dinner. The food was a bit salty for my liking.

Ping Pong Dim Sum


We got the weekend dim sum buffet and sampled all the main entrees too. Overall not bad. The green tea waffles were nice but the chicken was overcooked. The duck was a bit salty.

United States Botanic Garden


The Botanic Garden sits on the way to the Capitol. Since we had 30 minutes to spare before our tour, we went inside to take a quick look at the colors from the flowers.

Bistro Francais


We grabbed some lunch at Bistro Francais in Georgetown.  The place seems pretty busy.  I liked the bread, gazpacho and spanish style rice.  Not sure why a french restaurant has spanish style rice, but I liked it anyway.

Seats in the elevator


We checked in the hotel for our stay in Washington.  An interesting feature of the elevator is a bench seat.  The kids took full advantage of the feature during the stay in Washington.
