Reading Kiplinger's account of all the tourists who come so far to see our Nation's Capital City reminded me of how great privilege we have living here for a semester. Below is a list of things I want to do here before I leave to fully take advantage of this opportunity.
1.) Attend a performance at the Kennedy Center- I'm thinking the National Symphony Orchestra a week from Saturday.
2. )See the statue Grief in Rock Creek Cemetery that Kiplinger talks about in the article.
3.) Visit the Washington Historical Society- founded by Kiplinger's son Austin.
4.) See the Jefferson memorial- I have never been.
5.) Take an afternoon off work to take a tour of the Capitol.
6.) Go hiking on Roosevelt Island
6.) Watch the sunrise on the Lincoln Memorial.
