the other washington



well this is going to be short. chipotle is just around the corner and it opens in about 30 minutes. i havent eaten for a while and i already know it will be sooo good.
(that first picture is slanty because i was trying to keep all of the construction out, and it was at a weird angle, again because of construction)

here is a picture from the back of the train leaving charlottesvilles on my way to washington dc. it was only like a 3 hour train ride and the train arrived 30 minutes early.


as you may have read in the last post, the 2 hour layover in dc actually was supposed to be a 6 hour one. so i headed out around the town to take some pictures for all of you people. this first one is outside of union station.



here is the capitol building with a large scenic fountain.



i honestly have no idea what this building is. it was just big and the kind you would expect in this city.....





















creepy statue. the quote says, "lord what fools these mortals be!"
im sure it from some famous book ive never read. but that leaves pretty much any book a possibility. the statue was in front of a library i think.






















i thought this was a cool view of this horse statue/fountain.























some federal building.....






















this lady was funny. she tried to tell me something but i was listening to my music. not quite sure what she said. probably pretty profound....























these next three pictures i took once i got back to the train station to wait for my train. it was like a museum inside...

















































these last pictures are on the train back to chicago, which is where i currently am now. i leave in a couple of hours for on a 50 hour train over and down to los angeles. i hope that nobody is sitting next to me and i get an electrical outlet....




well thats all for this one. once i get home i will try and wrap up anything that happened here in chicago, though im not expecting much, and anything else worth mentioning on the train home. with that kind of time on my hands, who knows, i could get very bored, which means i will make my own fun......

The unknown verse on the statue is a quote by Shakespeare in A Midsummer Nights Dream. You really should review what you are blogging as there WILL be a test when you get home. Midget
