We stayed at the Willard Hotel, two blocks from the White House. It was lovely and all decked out for Christmas.
I had the morning free while Jessica attended a seminar, and went for a walk. In the park by the White House, I saw this statue, which looked very much like a WPA-era piece of art.
This Roy LIchtenstein house made me smile.
I never got close to the capitol - no time. But here is a distant picture for your viewing pleasure.I think It is probably the most beautiful building in Washington.
