I took all these pictures in DC. See if you can guess what these are pictures of and where they were taken.

I’ve been thinking those Smart Cars are pretty cute ever since I began seeing them in Europe several years ago. If I lived in a city (and I had a car), I would probably snap one up. I finally got a chance to sit in one during my last trip to DC. In the meantime, I’ll just keep pining for what I really want, which is a Nissan Micra (not sold in the U.S.) Possibly Related Posts: DC Mystery Pictures Another Monument Walk in DC AMATYC Walk the Monuments Walking on Water Not only am I never coming...Read More
On Thursday I discovered the FDR Memorial (I didn’t even know it existed) AND I made the trek all the way to the Jefferson Memorial. Here are the pictures! Possibly Related Posts: Where am I ? Voodoo Doughnut DC Mystery Pictures Who likes the SMART car? Technology Trip to Hope...Read More
I grew up in Fairfax County (right outside of Washington DC), and I’ve been to the monuments in DC about a zillion times. The best time to see all the monuments (especially when you’ve already got a packed day) is at night. So, barring really bad weather, I’m willing to take a bunch of people on an evening mall walk on Thursday, November 20. It will make it a late night, but I figure Thursday is the day you’ll still have the most energy and you’ll be desperate to see the city! If you’d like to join us, meet in the lobby of the Churchill Hotel at 8:30pm. We will walk to the Metro and take it to the National Mall. We will see the Washington Monument, World War II Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and Korean Memorial. It is a long walk … probably a good 3-4 miles. I’m guessing we’ll be back at the hotels around 11:30pm. Bring about $5 to pay for metro fare, or put an extra couple bucks on your metro card when you arrive in DC. My guess is that it will be cold, so dress warmly – hat, gloves, and scarf… and wear walking shoes! If you plan to take pictures, invest a couple of minutes into learning how to use the night setting on your camera. Possibly Related Posts: Where am...Read More
I wandered over to the Portrait Gallery (which is a couple blocks behind the National Archives) on my free afternoon in D.C. It was recently remodeled and now it includes a beautiful covered courtyard where you can “walk on water.” I actually skipped wandering through the modern art on the 3rd floor so that I could just stay in the cool air and watch the kids (and adults) play in the water. If walking on water isn’t enough for you, you can leap on water! Isn’t this a great picture? In the late afternoon, I met a friend from high school that I had not seen in 16 years! (she took this picture) We walked over to Rosa Mexicana (kitty corner to the Portrait Gallery) which has fantastic mexican food … and I do mean fantastic! There we her husband and a friend for a nice leisurely dinner. Here’s me and Susan – she is doing a great job in the picture of not looking seven months pregnant! It’s like the stealth fetus!
