Scenes from Washington DC

I took a Sunday morning walk in sleepy Washington DC. Seven years after we first visited it, this city remains as cold and detached as ever.

All the trees in DC are bare save the cherry blossoms, which are starting to bloom very nicely.

I attended Sunday church at St John’s, an old Episcopal church attended by many US Presidents. Sermon was short and sharp, and worship focused on praise and song. Excellent, that’s the way church services should be, rather than long boring sermons.
