Terra Cotta Warrior at Union Station

Warrior Outside Union Station
Originally uploaded by brownpau

If you pass through the Union Station 1st St NE entrance this afternoon, you might see this guy made up and posing as a living statue under the arches beside a chalk drawing on the floor.

Looks like a promo for an upcoming National Geographic Museum exhibit, Terra Cotta Warriors. I didn’t wait to see if he changed poses, but if anyone else gives him a poke, please do report back as to the results.

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.

  1. One was at Gallery Place lastnight posing with tourists. So I think he’ll probably move if you ask him nicely!
