While we were at the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum, we got a behind the scenes tour of the largest shell collection in the world. Anna’s friend did his fellowship at the Smithsonian this summer so he gave us a look into what he studied. There were rows and rows and more rows of shells. It was unbelievable the number of shells in there. Also, I took a picture of his office. It overlooked all of the National Mall. I would never get anything done here. There are too many people to watch out those windows.
