Washington DC Day 2: Wandering The Mall

4/13/15   Yesterday (Day 2) was more scattered than wanted. Things started well when I found free parking about a mile East from the US Capitol Building near the intersection of Pennsylvania Ave. and Potomac St.   My intention was to tour the Smithsonian Museum

Washington DC Day 1: Arlington Cemetery and Respect

Arlington Cemetery – 4/11/15   Citizens buried next to military. Fathers buried next to sons. Wives buried next to husbands. Confederates buried next to Yankees.   It’s gusty here. Most of the trees are budding. The cherry blossoms are in peak bloom.   I’m standing at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, 10:25 am.
