Since our head trainer mentioned that Banjo was "fat", we have started a fitness routine. It just happens to coincide with our trip. We only brought 30 cups of food that needs to be rationed over the eight days. Today we walked from 11am to 3pm; started at George Washington University and ended up on Theodore Roosevelt Island. Only day two and he already looks lean and mean.
After our hike, it was time for dinner, we descended into the caverns to catch the subway. The Thai Palace has a "NO Dogs Allowed" policy, so we fought to get a seat in the empty restaurant. It was an educational opportunity as Banjo was well behaved, sleeping through dinner.
We headed back to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Neither Banjo nor Lisa appreciated the trumpet and live electronics duet. But we all found the vibraphone and piano pieces enchanting. Once again Banjo fell asleep and this time he started snoring.
We arrived home late for a Sunday and had to take a taxi home; there really isn't much room in the backseat. We had to do a little cajoling to convince the cab driver to take a dog. Back at the hotel, Banjo scarfed down his three cup dinner ration. Breakfast has been changed to one cup to avoid potential accidents.
