Where was I last week?

in space

No, not really in space.

But one of the places we visited while in Virginia was the Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center of the National Air & Space Museum – and, if you have been there, you will know that it is spectacular!  The space is immense, but with sky walks, stairs and balconies, it is easy to navigate.  There were a lot of people there the day we visited.  The logical way the exhibits are laid out – and quality of the light and airiness of the space – contributed to a very pleasant experience.

Here are some more photos – but go there if you can.

Flash Gordon is the hero of a science fiction adventure comic strip originally drawn by Alex Raymond. First published January 7, 1934.  Ref. Wiki.
