Is on right now and I went there last night in an attempt to at least catch one of the First Thursday events and it was lovely and I managed to take this crummy photo of a small window into his charming work space right there at the gallery *breathes*
Go see it.
It’s got words and colours and sounds and we even got some free wine last night. It’s trippy too and, not to sound too cliche, it puts you in a good space.
See the art at Muti Gallery: 3 Vredehoek Avenue, Oranjezicht. Read more about the exhibition here.
I’ve become a massive fan of Washington D.C.’s basketball team, The Wizards so wolf and I bought ourselves some tickets to one of their games (they won).
We dined at diners and breakfasted at iHop nearly every morning. I have a usual, wolf likes to try EVERYthing on the menu.
We walked through D.C. at night ad it’s almost more alive than it is during the day. We stumbled onto an outdoor ice rink and skated around on terrible skates in the heart of one of the picturesque parks.
We saw a movie at one of the most luxurious cinemas (push one button and your seat adjust to a horizontal position – how future!?)
Washington D.C. is very very cold in December. We got a white Christmas.
Wolf and I went to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo.
It is free to enter and quite a beautiful facility. I’m still not 100% sure how I feel about animal parks and zoos (some have their place), but if you’re in Washington DC, this is a definite on the list of things to see and experience.
You can find it at 3001 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washingto DC, 20008, and is easily reached via the metro’s red line at Woodley Park Station.
Despite the rain and cold, DC was a wonderful land to explore with wolf. We spent some days leading up to Christmas walking the city streets.
Washington DC is an easy, walkable place with access via the colourful lines of the metro. The Smithsonian Museums are all worth some hours and are free. We visited the info centre (on Jefferson Drive), bought a popout map (these are truly great, do recommend) and set out.
The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum is a must-visit, but it may take you more than a day to truly digest all the information and exhibits.
The city centre itself is littered with incredible monuments, buildings and statues. You can’t walk far without spying a number of these along the way.
It was fun.
