  • It had been a while since my last visit to DC, but I was there again just last week - great to be back! And I've seen almost everything worth seeing, with several exceptions including the International Spy Museum. So off I went - and it was indeed a way cool experience!  So much fascinating stuff; one of the things I was most hoping to see was info on the murder of Bulgarian dissident Georgi Markov in London with a poison-tipped umbrella.
