    I did realise that. Didn't realise he had divested himself of that one. The kids weren't impressed (they are not fans)

      Would be a great thread if you posted full size pics, and you have a go at me for posting the occasional thumbnail.


    Erm, they are full size pics... or are you seeing something different?

    What a palaver.

    Are they fixed now?

    Is it too many pics in one post?

    ^I can see all pics now. I only put 2-3 pics in a post due to the pic posting difficulties here.

    Wow, your eldest son has indeed grown. He seems to be a tall dude. What's his height? My guess is 6'3" or 6'4".

    In that case, I have no idea why they do or don't work here.

    My favourite part of the museum. Master KW's too! Being as he is eight life is about T.rex's and all things Jurassic.

    Most of the skeletons are set up in 'life poses', which is interesting. Beats the museums in Bandung.

    The sheer size of these guys is incredible.

    USA Trip-screenshot-2022-07-26-10-04-a


    They had plenty of interactive displays, like this which the kids liked. It bugged me a little, because they can play with computers at home! Look at the damn fossils will ya!

    Glow in the dark scorpions? I never knew that.


    USA Trip-screenshot-2022-07-26-9-05-a


    The elephants are interesting, but what's that sign we spot over the other side of the hall?

    Mendy will be proud. MissKW was super interested in the Geology, Gems and Minerals section. We spent another hour or so here.

    Your motorcycle friend looks like he may be up for a new engine soon by the looks of those pipes. BTW, the other pics were great.

    Why Washington, Willy (I know you said earlier in the thread it was a family visit)?

    I'm hoping to do Route 66 in the next few years, and I'd also like to go to New Orleans and the west coast, but I've never heard great things about Washington.

    Ummm... the Tyrannosaurus Rex was from the late Cretaceous.


    One of my favourite bits of dinosaur trivia...

    Stegosaurus would have been a fossil by the time T. rex evolved. And since Tyrannosaurus lived 66 million years ago, that means Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus lived further apart from each other in time than Tyrannosaurus lived from us. It's hard for us to wrap our heads around so many years.




    Those are fantastic dinosaur exhibits. We hope to visit the Natural History Museum in Kensington next week to see something similar.

    Willy, you can get an ultra violet torch from Lazada and walk around with the kids at night spotting scorpions, if you get many down your way. The big black ones we sometimes get in Korat light up like a Christmas tree.

    Good thread Willy. I suspect the grown ups enjoyed it as much as the kids.

    Much better than pics of them staring at their phones in some fast food joint.

    Cretaceous, Jurassic… I knew I shoulda just said a long fecking time ago. :angry: but in all seriousness that’s a fantastic pirate of trivia that I will now be able to revel Master Willy with.

    Thanks. We also went to the Natural History museum in NYC, but I haven’t finished covering Day 2 yet, let alone Day 14!

    I’ve pretty much given up on BoredBook and Instagram. Mostly leave it to MrsKW.

    Family visit put us in the region, but Washington DC is an easy visit, as I mentioned the Smothsonian Museums ( four or 6 of them) are excellent and all free. I’ve only covered one morning far. One hassle was that Spring time is school tour group time and their was loads of teenagers in big groups with slightly frazzled teachers supervising them all over the place and hundreds of coaches parked out front.
