Washington D.C. x 5

I call Masha my little sister-cousin because even though she is the daughter of our close family friends, I feel so much unconditional love and care for this girl that I think of her as some sort of sister-cousin hybrid. Also, it is funny to say "sister-cousin". She's been visiting New York on and off for a month at a time since 2006. We've got a 10 year age difference but it feels much smaller because we talk (or Whatsapp message each other) about life and all of it's twists and turns. Anyway, she'd been to New York 4 times but never outside of it, so this August we went to Philadelphia (and visited Philadelphia's Magic Gardens) for a day and Washington, DC for a weekend. It was the 4th time I went to D.C. in the last 4 years (and 5th time in total) and I got to see a different side because Masha and I stayed with some friends of mine who lived there! I thank them all (J.C., Sean, Crystal) for their kindness and hospitality. Here are some photos:

Nice building situation.

Predictably, I love impressionism.
The National Museum of American History is a strange, random collection
of bits of American history.

Masha met the Obamas.
Isn't she just so cool!?

Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.
After about 8 hours of walking, I was tired and needed a lap to curl into.

Collection of pretty houses.
I really enjoyed walking about these neighborhoods.
We made it to the Capitol Building.
Look at the pretty houses.

Pretty colors for a house.
