I started my visit at a Tweetup. Top is @TheAlexLop, L-R @pulpologist, me & @runawayjuno. Fabulous time!!! Thanks everyone.
I’ve just spent a whirlwind three days in Washington DC. The reason for my visit was to talk about solo travel at the Smithsonian Institute – awesome! But I did so much more.
I will have more posts on my visit here for you but, for now, I’ll give you an overview with some photos.
This is from the Machu Picchu exhibit at the National Geographic Society – this one is free. They have some exhibits for which there is a charge.
There is no hope to offer an original shot of the Capitol Building – but, impressive none the less.
The National Museum of the American Indian includes native nations from North and South America as well as a cafeteria that offers much more than common fare.
The Sculpture Garden outside the Hirshhorn Museum.
Without doubt, The Lincoln Memorial is a powerful experience.
The Vietnam Vetrans Memorial Wall is particularly poignant given that you can see yourself in the wall.
I went to the Willard Hotel for its beauty and history. For the price of a cup of coffee ($5.50) I soaked in the ambiance of the Round Robin & Scotch Bar. I’m sure many a deal was brokered there.
And the reason I was there in the first place… Joe Yonan and me speaking at The Smithsonian.
