Day One - Library of Congress and Capitol

Kristen picked us up from the airport and treated us to "We the Pizza" before dropping us off at the Library of Congress. Beautiful interior paintings and Bibles!
then Thomas Jefferson's original circular library, where we found "The Iliad," "The Odyssey," and a catalogue of Popes along with Italian and French dictionaries.  Delightful! 
We took a guided tour of the Capitol and marveled at its statues, rotunda, and whispering acoustics.

plus he bought a souvenir T-shirt.
