If you ever have the urge to be humbled beyond words, just head to our nation’s capital and take in as many memorials and monuments as you can. The scope and sheer size of them, combined with the deep meaning and everything they symbolize, will really bring into perspective everything that’s been done in our country’s history.
This was my second trip to DC, but the first time I really got to see the sights and have any amount of time to really feel the emotions these monuments command. I need to go back. I have a feeling I could spend a week in DC and not cover everything I want to, which is a good thing because that’s a pretty good excuse to keep going back, as if one is really necessary!
(Also… you’ll notice a photo of a veal chop below. That was taken inside Filomena Ristorante, right in Georgetown. Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, amazing amazing amazing. Did I say amazing?)
