I'm sorry I haven't posted for weeks. My 450+ photos were a bit daunting. And then after sorting out all the blurry ones, the photos of the same thing, and the photos of people, I got a little under two hundred. Which was still very daunting. And since I have to upload photos five at a time, and I have to select them all individually, I really didn't want to do that. But eventually, today I just decided to narrow it down a LOT. Until finally I got these 11 photos. I can just tell you about some of the things I did without photos.
This is a photo of the Capitol Building. We took photos from the back, but we did not manage to go inside.
The Capitol Building.
Then we went to the Library of Congress, which was a beautiful building. With art everywhere and tons of symbolism. You need some sort of pass and a reason to go into the actual library, but there's a balcony where you can see it from the top, and we looked at it there. There were no photos allowed there though.
"IN THIS TEMPLE
AS IN THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE
FOR WHOM HE SAVED THE UNION
THE MEMORY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN
IS ENSHRINED FOREVER"
We stayed in an adorable little apartment, because it wasn't much more than hotels in DC, and it had a kitchen, so that would save us money on going out for food. It was really cute and cozy.
We also saw the National Gallery of Art, the Air and Space Museum, the Natural History Museum, a statue of Einstein, the National Zoo, and two concerts. It was a wonderful trip, and I'm very glad we went.
