|In our tour of the Capitol. Hannah taught us that initially they wanted Washington to be buried under this central point of the building and have a flame eternally burning above it. The humble Washington declined and is buried at his home Mt. Vernon.|
|One of the two statues our state has in the Capitol. Had to get my pic with my man B. Young!!|
|Capitol Bikeshare, Sara and I rode bikes from Georgetown to the WWII and Lincoln Monuments|
|It was so hot and humid ALL the time. Here's me at the Lincoln M.|
Today I was supposed to be traveling into the London/Heathrow airport from DC. That did not happen. Instead I'm back in Utah sitting in my kitchen. Yes, I am still going. No, I don't know when. Yes, it is frustrating. I found out the SAME morning I was leaving (talk about major packing changes). To make a very long story short, I don't have a Visa yet. It is being handled by two very nice immigration lawyers as we speak. We're hoping that it doesn't take more than a few weeks. It wasn't my fault, it wasn't my boss Andy's fault... it just is what it is. I am positive that I will be happier in the long run having my Visa fully backing me up over there. I don't want to say anything else about the matter and I am not going to explain it again. But I would like to say that I appreciate everyone's concern and help through all of this. And now that I'm exhausted from my week in DC I am actually kind of happy I get to come home and regroup a bit. Speaking of DC.............................
MY TRIP TO DC!!!
Ok, seriously a blast. I mainly went to see Hannah and Sara who are out there for work and school, but ended up hanging out with a whole group of friends that also live there (ie, Steve and Jessie and Scott).
This blog post will be a novel if I go into a ton of details so I'm just going to highlight via pictures.
|At Eastern Market on Saturday morning|
|In front of the National Archives. Got to see the Constitution, Dec. of Ind. and Bill of Rights|
|Me and Hannah in front of Washington monument|
|It took us a while to find this tunnel... but when we did it led to the Pentagon and the Pentagon 911 memorial lit up|
|Nationals game. I'm a fan. Scott let me borrow his hat for the pic since Sara decided she didn't want to buy them.|
