The Jefferson was a favorite of mine and I felt the photos needed the drama of black and white.
I wanted to chip off a slab of marble and take it home. I kept thinking countertop suppliers are liars for saying countertops can only be 2" thick.
We visited the Capitol.
I was told Mrs. Jackie Kennedy tried to remove this chandelier and put it in the White House. She was unsuccessful and it remains hanging here.
My neck was getting sore from looking up the whole time but there was a lot to take in.
Do you see that speckled line above Reagan's name? Those were pieces from the Berlin Wall. Endless details I tell you!
This Senate committee room makes me think other offices should step-it-up in their decor.
We went to Arlington National Cemetery & Robert E. Lee's former home.
We noticed a lot of tourist taking pictures like they were holding the monuments in their fingers or over their heads. Tony struck this pose when he saw I was taking pictures of him.
...do you see what I mean?
A couple of places we enjoyed eating included: Founding Farmers, Old Ebbitt Grill and the Round Robin & Scotch Bar.
If you have not visited since a school field trip, I highly recommend taking a trip to this city.
