Washington Day 2

We went to the Holocost Museum and then we were going to go to the Smithsonian but after a morning of learning about the Holocost, we didn’t want to learn anything more. So we did a whirlwind tour of the Whitehouse, Library of Congress, Capitol building and Commerce building.

Commerce Hall or Chamber of Commerce… I can’t remember which. Anybody know?
Capitol Building. We got some passes to go inside the building. It was a maze of hallways and was very confusing to get around. I was surprised that we were able to get in.

The Library of Congress. This was an amazing piece of architecture. We were not allowed into the main study area.

The Mellon Hotel, right next the the Whitehouse. I got a clue as to the kind of guest stay here when a guy was complaining at the front desk about the lack of a shoe shining service in the room.

The International Spy Museum. It was an amazing museum. I now know how to make microdots from cellophane and alcaseltzer. Very useful information.
