Roadtrip Day 271
Grabbed the Metro to go to the National Archives. Lovely day after the COLD of yesterday. About 70 and somewhat sunny. Nice. Bit of a line to get in then another lineup to enter the rotunda which houses the Biggies. History weighs heavily when looking at these founding documents of our nation.
After navel-gazing in the rotunda, we toured many other sites in the building. Some pretty good coverage of suffrage and civil rights, not quite as good (IMO) on Native Americans. A goodly number of military documents. All in all, a moving, emotional, and maybe even motivating visit.
Lunch from a Mexican food-truck on the street outside. Strolling a few blocks back to the Metro, then returning to Falls Church. A few groceries and we’re settled for the sudden rain of the late afternoon.
