Tuesday's picture of the day2
Last time I came to Washington a mixture of a security and very long queues made it impossible to do two things -firstly go up the Washington Memorial and secondly tour Congress and see the Chamber that the House of Representatives and Senate meet in. Well I managed the second and the improvement in crowd management and the quality of the exhibition was very good (give or take a sense of hyperbole - unmatched, best in the world... which could definitely be argued). The building itself is spectacular and also there was access to the Library of Congress which is likewise had some great exhibitions and a beautiful building. If you do visit be warned - if you want to see the Senate in action they take long lunches.
