Washington, DC

We lived in the DC area from 2003 to 2008 and we loved it, particularly the historic area of DC with all the old neoclassical buildings. Here is a gallery of photographs of some of those buildings, including a few from Union Station, which is not only a train station but also a connection to DC’s metrorail system.

Photos from the US Capitol

Here are selected photos from the US Capitol, taken a few years ago. You’ll see me in one of the photos, recording the Christmas Train Show at the US Botanic Garden, and you’ll also see Ligia in one of the photos (see if you can spot her).

At the Vietnam Memorial

Here are photos taken at the Vietnam Memorial in DC, back in 2006. War is war. The photos say it all. Just have a look at the faces of the people who were visiting it at the time, and at the huge flock of crows flying around the grounds.

DC Cherry Blossoms in 2008

Here are selected photos from the 2008 Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. They’re taken at various points around the Basin, which is where you’ll find the greatest number of cherry trees and conversely, the greatest concentration of people. The crowds were out in numbers that year!

Be sure to go through all the photos below. I picked them out of hundreds taken at the event. Enjoy!

Photos from the US Botanic Garden in DC

Should you find yourself in DC, the US Botanic Garden should be on your list of places to visit. It’s right next to the Capitol so if you want a break from the buildings and the politics, step inside to look at the flowers and the plants, they’ll make for a welcome change.

And if you should find yourself in DC during winter time and you have children, then you should definitely visit, because they put on quite the toy train show there, every winter. I even recorded a video of it for you, which you can see in this post.

Enjoy the photos, there are 50 of them below!
