These words are my diary screaming out loud

I kinda really love DC.

First of all, I have a fantastic view from my new apartment. I look out and I can see, from left to right, the National Cathedral, the Washington Monument, Reagan National Airport, the Capital Dome, and several other DC buildings. Its amazing how the different weather can change how that view looks - when the skies are clear and blue, everything just stands out. When its raining, the whole thing turns gray. This morning, when the skies were cloudy and it was about to rain, it was absolutely breathtaking. At night, everything is lit up, and just absolutely beautiful.

When Matt was visiting a couple of weeks ago, we spent some time walking around Downtown DC and seeing some of the sights, sort of, that I hadn't seen in a LONG time. I guess that with my parents having lived here for so long I've really kind of taken for granted all the amazing things this city has to offer.

Like the Chinatown Arch:
And the White House:

 And cool statues in front of museums: 

And protest rallies :)

I think this summer I'm going to try to do some more touristing - although I promise I will NOT stand on the left side of the escalator, or stop in the middle of the sidewalk, or block all the exits at the Metro :)

Amazing how when you live somewhere it takes so long to do all the "tourist" stuff! It took me 2 years
