Virginia & DC

Another Brian's Bucket List trip completed: I went to Washington DC and saw the Japanese Cherry Tree Blossoms. I've wanted to see the Nation's Capital this way. However, maximum blooms were achieved a week earlier. I still found some great examples. I went to African American museum, Holocaust museum, walked from the Capitol to Lincoln Memorial and got a unique tour of the Capitol via Congresswoman Debbie Lesko's office. I stood on the House of Representatives floor and on the Speakers balcony which looks out into the National Mall. Before all this, surprised my Great Aunt in Virginia. Last time I was in her house was 1999. My cousin showed me the old house where my Dad grew up. Truly an excellent trip.
