Working at an event for the World Resources Institute, I, along with my friend and colleague Roger, had the opportunity to experience Washington, D.C. during the most wonderful time of the year. Having picked up Roger at Baltimore/Washington International Airport, we made our way to the capitol to begin our adventure and work at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre (www.woollymammoth.net). Given that D.C. is practically stuffed to the gills with exciting things to do, we filled our two-day trip with as much fun as possible.
Our first stop was to see the National Christmas Tree – a breathtaking sight. We also came across a street fair replete with hand-crafted goods of all kinds, which was just what I needed to finish off my holiday shopping list. Lastly, what’s a trip to Washington without stopping at a museum? So, Roger and I thought it was necessary, considering our line of work, to peruse the art at the National Portrait Gallery (www.npg.si.edu) and see the classic works of great artists such as Seargent and Chuck Close. This trip was just what we needed to close this very busy and joyous season.
