The most recent travels of the Eindhoven mug took it to the capitol of the USA. I find it fascinating to stand in history-seeped places that form part of the heart of the USA. I try to imagine all that has passed or is passing in these places and what they are memorializing, even though in some ways, the USA is a relatively young country compared to the rest of the world.
My time in the Capitol was short – too short to see everything there, but full (the pictures above were taken over the course of a few days). I still want to see Arlington Cemetery and spend more time in the Smithsonian Museums, while also wandering further away from the Capitol Mall. I suppose it means that someday I will have to return.
