DC, captured.

My good friend, Clementine, from elementary school came to visit after having moved to South Africa 6 years ago. I hadn’t really kept in touch with her at all but I got a text from a friend, Nida, that she was in town. so we planned to meet up. The next day Clem and I planned a trip to DC with Aileen, and here’s how it went:
We’re always finding out shocking information about history through the Smithsonian Museums (Art)
After failing to get into the National Archives Museum, we admired the pretty architecture of the building
(the ceiling above us)
This might have been my favorite painting.
{Auguste Renoir
French, 1841-1919
oil on canvas}
excited about seeing Harry Potter at midnight, we kept finding peculiar artifacts that resembled those from the books
(a beautiful Goblet of Fire)
Can you find the difference between these two paintings?
Seriously, what was the deal with the replica?
sneaking around the security guards at the Art Museum
we were getting really sleepy so we just started laughing at all the paintings while whistling the tune of the Harry Potter theme song and speaking to everyone in a British accent.
such a cute little courtyard
Visiting Barack + family. This was actually the first time I’d ever seen this side of the White House. I’m always looking through the gate on the other side when I visit DC.
This is the building next to the White House that I’ve always loved to stare at.
The architecture is really beautiful! I’d want to live here if it wasn’t full of offices.

A successful visit to the states! I love showing people around. Except, I don’t remember a single visit to DC when I haven’t gotten completely lost… including this one. But hey, getting lost with fun friends is never an unfortunate circumstance 🙂
