But I digress, in short, the new National Geographic shop manages to do a little bit of everything. It is part natural history/anthropology museum, gallery, lecture theater, café, book shop, tech shop, outdoors shop. But perhaps a little bit like us, seems to pull off the mix quite well! For those of you in London, this is a shop worth checking out (particularly in January when the public lectures start). For those of you not out here, the wait may not be long. A second store in Singapore is set to open before the new year, plans are also underway to open stores in Berlin, Istanbul and other locations.
May I return it to the retail store in Washington, DC
