When I was in Washington D.C. earlier this month I visited the National Museum of the American Indian. I was told that the restaurant there has great food that is inspired by the cuisines of the Native American people. The restaurant was big and impressive and my food was delicious but not surprisingly it was also very expensive.  Still, not an everyday opportunity for me. The museum’s architecture was very nice, for a moment you forgot you were on the National Mall and the exhibits were good but in my opinion there was way too much space devoted to food service, gift shop and children’s play area. On the other hand, I did have a good experience and it seemed other people were as well, so what the heck am I complaining about.

These drawings are from the exhibition Cerámica de los Ancestros: Central America’s Past Revealed.
