I don’t know when google made it available but the map is now permanently embedded into this thing; Awesome!! Its clearly quite difficult to read and see the pop-ups of the pins in the embed so I still recommend the link at top left to see all of those, but still nonetheless the embed is a quick and easy overview.
In NEW-PIN NEWS;
Kelly and I spent a great day at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo (2 new pins in map). Free to ALL public it is a MUST for anyone in the area. The layout is designed like central park, except you know it has cheetahs, pandas, sea lions and everything everywhere you go including climbing wires for orangutans over walkways! My personal favorite was the sea lions, you can watch them from above or even under water and they do not disappoint, constantly splashing water trying to catch it in their mouths, jumping over each other, racing around and everything; We actually spent about 4-5 hours there and got through maybe only 2/3rds of the zoo, again Highly Recommended!
Kelly and I also got to attend our first home Redskins game at Fed Ex Field in Landover Maryland (essentially just on the other side of the river of D.C.). We got the tickets from one of her bosses who is a season ticket holder and didn’t feel like attending anymore as the ‘Skins had been eliminated from playoff contention…
We soon learned there was more likely a second reason… 10 degree windchill throughout the whole game left us pretty frostbite but a tight 10-3 game that ended with Washington stopping Philadelphia on the 1 yard line as time expired was surely a game worth seeing. The stadium seating itself it very nice and spacious, though like many NFL stadiums really lacks anything unique about it such as a baseball park would, still a recommended visit for of course tailgaiting and game experience, but watch out for some of the steepest concession prices I have ever seen e.g. $9-11 for beer.
