Revisiting Washington DC

It is always nice to visit the capital. All the museums and institutions around, the peaceful streets in the day time (crime is an issue once the night sets in) and all other opportunities that DC has to offer are giving it a special appeal. This time around we visited the U.S. Capitol Building and it was a nice adventure. Following it, we strolled a bit the streets, passing the White House, where preparations for the NY eve (or the Obama inauguration were taken place) and giving up on the Smithsonian Natural History Museum to give it a try at the adjacent ice skating ring, which unfortunately was also packed at that hour. Overall, a very nice way to spend a freezing but sunny December day.
