Yes this post is exactly how it sounds. It’s a whole bunch of pictures from my trip to Washignton DC.
There are so many stories from the trip. Many that I could go on and on about. Overall, it was a city full of sites, and amazing eye opening experiences. Things that I won’t talk about here as they’re highly personal. I also finally got that the Jeffersonian in “Bones” is the fictional Smithsonian. I know, it took me that long. I think it finally clicked in at my third Smithsonian museum. If you get the chance, I suggest spending a lot of time in the Museums, they’re really great. And the National Gallery of Art is stunning. Just amazing. I spent two hours just in the Italian and French paintings.
But as a Political Science major I loved seeing all the grand buildings. White House, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, the FBI building, the Pentagon, the DOJ buildings, and on and on. I geek out about that too.
It was so cool to walk around and see some many great things. Not pictured here are Georgetown, U-Street, Adams Morgan, and a whole bunch of other amazing sights and neighborhoods. I could talk forever about the good and the bad, but it’s certainly a city that needs to be experienced.
If you’d like to see more, I highly suggest clicking over to my Instagram to see the things I haven’t posted here – silly things like great places to get a treat, or the Exorcist Steps, or my new sunglasses because I totally forgot mine even though it’s usually my brush. Yes, this is the first trip I’ve gone on where I actually remembered to bring my hairbrush. Don’t laugh, it’s a big deal for a woman with hair down to her waist.
Side note: yes, the studio model of the USS Enterprise is posted in both places. Don’t hate the geek girl.
