8. I had a very weird experience at the National Archives.

I was in Wash DC visiting tourist sights, and went to see the original Declaration of Independence at the National Archives. It is is a large glass case, and there is typically a long line of people waiting to view it.

It was finally my turn and I looked at the original Dec of Independence, began to read it, and felt transported to another place and time. I could imagine the second continental congress, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, etc. working on the document.

The next think I know is that a guard is telling me to move on, other people want to see the document. I was mortified as I am typically considerate of other people and don't hog things...... I must have lost track of time which has never happened to me before or since.
