We left the rig in the Hudson Valley and came to the nation’s capital for most of April where Mark could work in his office for a change. We rented an apartment in Adams Morgan from an old friend and roamed the city as it burst with all the beauty of spring.
At the White House we checked out the protestors who bring their grievances to the President’s front door.
In Lafayette Square, across from the White House, a statue of General Lafayette, including these two officers, honors the French contribution to the American Revolution.
We spent a week with Margo and John who joined us from Minneapolis and we explored many corners of the city, including a Nationals baseball game and a film night in the offices of the Washington Post.
Caricatures of Lincoln and Obama at Off the Record, a cozy snug tucked in the basement of the Hay Adams Hotel and across the street from the White House (of course). (Don't miss our tour of the Wonder Exhibit at the Renwick Gallery just down the street.)
At Georgetown University we found these students celebrating the Hindu Festival of Colors.
Everywhere we went, we found the colors of spring.
Listen as Johnny Cash & Lynn Anderson tear it up.
Where we are today.
