I was brought out to Washington, DC to do some political work, and my hosts were generous enough to buy a ticket for Meeks and I to travel together. They knew this was the best way to convince me to take the trip, lbvs. Anyway, honestly I was extremely busy during the time we were there, but Meeks and I found time to get out together and see some of the national monuments including the Lincoln Monument, Washington Monument, the Vietnam War Memorial, and our favorite, the amazing Korean War monument; among others. The biggest takeaway for both of us, aside from how eerie and amazing the Korean War Memorial is, was how enormous and detailed the Lincoln monument is. Unfortunately the museums were closed, so we didn't get to do those; but outside of that it was still an amazing trip to take together. We also got out to Maryland to visit a childhood friend of Meeks, and that was quite a nice treat as well.
