Animals, Space, Wine, and Theater...

Thursday was a fun day. I did a bit of sight-seeing with Pol. We started by walking up to the DC Zoo. We saw lots of cool animals - the panda's were napping outside.
The hippo was pretty active and kept swimming around and looking at the people.
After sightseeing, we came back to the apartment to warm up. We ordered Chinese for lunch and watched 12 Monkeys (awesome movie).

Then it was off to school for a GWSS-sponsored event. There was a speaker from Space-X - which was really well done and exciting. Dr. Logsdon came to the event and hosted his annual "beaujolais nouveau" party - celebrating the first 2008 wine to be available.
After the GWSS event, we went to see Brian Kester in "Godspell". I'd never seen it, and didn't really know what it was about, and I really enjoyed it! It was a really fun play - and they were really interactive, so multiple times Pol and I were talking to characters and once we were on stage dancing.
