Anna: Hello! I have lived in Washington, D.C. for a long time now. And I have done a lot. I feel that I know this city pretty well. (walks off and comes back) That’s the wrong way. Where is it again?

Anna: (sees a tourist at a sign) Excuse me, can I help you? Have we met before?

Jean: I don’t think so. I’ve just flown in from Boston. My name is Jean.

Anna: Hi, Jean! I’m Anna. I really feel like we’ve met before. Anyway, how can I help?

Jean: I want to see an interesting museum but I don’t know which one.

Anna: I can help with that. I’ve lived in Washington, D.C. a long time. I think I’ve seen all the museums.

Jean: Wow, thanks. So, tell me, which museums are good?

Anna: Well, they are all good. But they’re all different. There are science museums and history museums and art and culture museums.

Jean: I want to see an unusual museum.

Anna: I like the Sculpture Garden. Have you ever seen sculptures in a garden? It is really artistic!

Jean: I have never seen a garden of sculptures! I’ll write that on my list!

Anna: Have you been to the Museum of the American Indian? I’ve visited that museum many times. It is very peaceful.

Jean: I have always liked American Indian culture.

Jean: I’ll put that on my list. (writes on list) Do you have any other suggestions?

Anna: Well, if you like plants, you can visit the U.S. Botanic Gardens. It’s very organic.

Jean: I have always loved plants. I’ll write that on my list, too! Wow, you know so much about D.C.’s museums.

Anna: Well, I have lived here for over a year.

Jean: You’re so lucky to live in such a beautiful city filled with so many museums and a zoo!

Anna: What? D.C. has a zoo?

Jean: Yes, and it’s beautiful. You’ve lived here for so long and you haven’t been to the zoo?

Anna: I’ve never been to D.C.’s zoo. I’ve never been to any zoos!

Jean: You have never seen zoo animals?

Anna: I grew up on a farm, Jean. I’ve known farm animals my whole life.

Jean: But the zoo has lions (makes sound of lion roaring) and elephants (makes sound of elephant trumpeting)and zebras (makes no sound)! If you have never seen a real, live elephant, you must. They are so majestic.

Anna: I will. I will! (writes list) There. I’ve written my own must-see zoo animal list!

Jean: Have fun at the zoo and thanks, Anna!

Anna: Have fun at the museums, Jean! And thank YOU!

Anna: This has been awesome! And I have seen every animal on my list! Jean, the tourist, helped me see more of my city. But where have I seen her before?

Oh well. Until next time …
