We're still in DC and spent the day visiting many national treasures, including the Spirit of St. Louis and the Hope Diamond. One of the best things about DC is that all of the museums are free. We also hit the zoo and saw the cheetah cubs and the famous panda cub, Tai Shan. People in DC have some serious panda fever- all of theses random people watching the pandas would blurt out panda facts like "There are only 1600 pandas left in the wild" and an "an adult panda eats 40 lbs. of bamboo a day." You could tell that they come to the zoo daily to hang with the pandas. Later on, we went to dinner at a Chinese restaurant where Caro and I drank the Flaming Volcano For 2. One thing led to another, and suddenly Eri was singing Bon Jovi at a karaoke bar.
