Cool. Closest I've ever gotten is Detroit. And that is a very different urban landscape, as they're a struggling city.@walesmaven wrote:
A long walk along the lake shore in Chicago can be a real treat. The Art Institute and the other museums are world class.
Not sure if you meant the Capitol building or D.C. in general.
If the latter, it's worth a visit for the museum and historic site tours. There are so many and as a history buff (that's my reading of you), I'd think you'd like it.
I personally don't like the traffic and crowdedness of D.C., but enjoy it as a vacation/exploration trip.
I'd like to visit downtown Chicago as my next trip. I've toured so much of the East and West coasts, but not so much the Mid-West.
Okay, gang. When you get to DC, give me a shout and we will plan a coffee visit, AFTER covid.
This sparked something in memory, and I checked: visitors from all around the world can make reservations for their groups [smaller groups now due to covid?] and they might be escorted by Congressional aides, staffers, or Congresspersons themselves. Identification is not required for these tours. What she described sounds like something off of the Capitol visitor's page online. So what seemed suspicious about tourists in the Capitol on that day as compared to all other tourists from all other tours of that building? Were people who rushed the capitol the only visitors to the Capitol? If not, she owes someone an apology.
I have not planned to visit the D.C area, but it is interesting to know how other people experience it. Keep up the interesting reports!
@1cent: If anyone was concerned about visitors on January 5, 2020, they should have reported their concerns at that time. I wonder why they did not speak up on that day. This information will emerge sooner or later.
Do you even read?
Let's all pray for peace this week. *nervous*
@HonnyBrown..... My how things have changed. How did we arrive at this point? How did we drift from your experience from 2016-2019 to 20,000 troops today? (Rhetorical question)
STILL can't fix crazy ....
