You already know that my trip to DC last month was amazing and I hope my post “10 Must Do’s in DC and surrounding area”  and the post “Chasing Murals: the DC Edition” helped you with the planning of your next trip to Washington DC. Or perhaps my posts convinced you to stop making excuses and just take the trip. If so, mission accomplished! If not, here are some other photos I took during my visit to Washington DC and Alexandria, Virginia. I’m sure these will do the trick.
