The S.S. Tycho Brahe: One smart boat
Whilst having a splendid evening in the DC Waterfront area, I spied this literary vessel. It's giving props to one of two geeky sources - either the Danish astronomer / alchemist or, better, one of the stars of my favorite webcomic, Penny Arcade.
It's a fun area. The fish market smells overwhelmingly of fish of many varieties, as will your clothes when you're done. I enjoying seeing a counter of crabs scurrying all over each other. The fishmongers (yessss) would toss the live crabs into brown paper bags and hand them to happy customers. Raw fun.
