We went to Washington DC and visited the National Museum of Natural History. I’ve been there before but it seems they keep changing it.
After visiting the museum, we went to Great Falls National Park (Virginia). There was a super long line at the park entrance and there were lots of fire trucks and ambulances going in and out. We didn’t really get to see anything interesting (related to the fire trucks) considering how we were stuck in the car line for almost 45 minutes.
First time I thoroughly checked at the airport. It was the weirdest thing ever. Okay first they’re like “walk through this funny elevator thing” that had this swishing revolving doors. Then security pats you down super awkwardly and you end up feeling sorry for them like:
“Do you wanna do this out here or somewhere else?” the nice lady asks me.
“Here, so I can get over this faster”
She just has this tired smile like ‘I know what you mean’ and then tells me that she can’t wait for the night shift to come so she could go home.
And that’s how we flew from Dulles to Abu Dhabi, and then Abu Dhabi to Islamabad. It was great to be back.
