Happy Monday! It was a hot day for a picnic, but the Mall was flooded with Smithsonian employees eating and picking up free cups. First stop was the Segway rides in front of the Freer. Real Segway tours run around the Mall from American History, but employees and interns alike got to learn the basics and take a quick spin around the Freer plaza.
We didn’t get to take a cool photo like this, but I did get to have a free ride of the carousel and feel like a little kid again. Then I bought lunch with the Smithsonian Monopoly money and picked up my free cup. After lunch, the interns headed into Arts and Industries to check out the marketplace and eat cake from the Cake Decorating Competition. When it was time to head back to work, another intern led us through the Castle, past the Boiler Room, through some creepy underground tunnels, and back into the Sackler.
