The day started with breakfast with a friend and then the National Gallery.
Here is a lovely Christological Goldfinch!
A closer look.
I then met a congressional staffer for lunch and a tour of the Capitol.
Since a while back I had lunch with a staffer in the Houses of Parliament in London, the staff cafeteria seemed a good place to go rather than someplace off campus.
The time at the Capitol was well spent. My friend really knew his stuff. Very grateful for the time. We went to the floor of the House and to the Senate and even had a chance to see the members’ chapel.
