Today's excursion was to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, which doesn't allow photography. I don't think that I can do justice to it with my own words, but what I will say is this: incredible, emotional, horrendous and inspiring. In the main entrance lobby there is an inscription carved into the wall: You are my witnesses ~ Isaiah:43:10.
From there we headed along the Mall area to Capitol Hill ~ it was much further than we thought, and also much hotter! We were soaking wet by the time we got to the Hill. The architecture is stunning, and parts of it reminded me of St. Paul's Cathedral in London.
We were sensible on the way back to the hotel, we caught the Metro!
