Red Cross Hippo

The same day I visited Glen Echo Park, I stopped to learn a little about the American Red Cross by visiting founder Clara Barton's house.

I didn't get any photos inside because I didn't want to damage the historical stuff with the camera flash, but I read all about Clara Barton, her house, and her work while I waited for the tour to start. You can see a virtual tour.

I also learned about first aid after I got itchy from the poison ivy.

Was it the poison ivy that made you red and cross? Poor little hippo dude.

Hmmm. Many zoos have carousels that include HIPPOs to ride on. Maybe Hippograms will start a petition to have one installed at the National Zoo. In memory of Happy perhaps. :)
