    Take In

    I have a question about the usage of the verb phrase "take in" here:


    "Gazing about me, I took in the details of the people surrounding me in the courtyard of a Russian Orthodox church"


    I checked this dictionary and none of the definitions for "take in" seems to fit the usage. Could the example sentence be poorly written?
