Your 30 Plus Teams Tour of Washington DC is in high gear now.
You’re going to a Washington Wizards basketball game at the Verizon Center, and it’s not that far from where you’re staying .
Going to a basketball game wasn’t really one of the things to do , but at the last minute , like the week before you got into the city, you decided to see Washington’s basketball contribution to your 30 Plus Teams Tour .
A Wizards game sounds like fun, even though you can name only one or two players on the team.
You figured in spite of that,
isn’t that the purpose of a 30 Plus Teams Tour , to see a game ?
A few blocks away from the Verizon Center is Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum .
You’ve been to some of the other ones, but you want to compare the others to this one, and see what might be so different .
If you happen to order a tourist guidebook from the Washington DC Tourism Board , there’s a discount coupon for the museum .
As you walk into the entrance , not only is there a wax figure of Marilyn Monroe , but there’s also one of Whoopi Goldberg , the actress and t.v. show host.
All ready it seems to you that this Madame Tussaud’s is just like all the others .
There are wax figures of Hollywood movie stars, T.V. reality stars and any kind of star wannabes .
They also have a small section of sports figures.
You see Babe Ruth in his New York Yankees uniform , and golfer Tiger Woods .
But wait just a minute here!
Who is this last figure in the corner that many people seem to be ignoring ?
Madame Tussaud’s must have known that you were going to visit today.
It’s one of your favorite players , Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals .
You just know pictures are in order, definitely selfies.
Just when you thought that you couldn’t be more impressed with this Madame Tussaud’s, they have a section on the President’s of the United States .
This is Washington DC , after all .
Not only is there an entire section on the president’s with their wives , but there’s also wax figures of the people who were important during that president’s administration .
All this sightseeing has made you very hungry.
You’d like to get some Japanese , Thai, or Chinese food .
You don’t have far to go for it.
That colorful Friendship Bridge that you passed earlier let’s you know where you are .
