CAPITAL JOURNEY – WASHINGTON , DC . A WASHINGTON WIZARDS BASKETBALL GAME AND A VISIT TO MADAME TUSSAUD’S.

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 .

Use  it.

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 .
