dc, day 3. it was saturday, so meredith was able to join us on our little adventure. she decided to take us to eastern market in capitol hill, a large outdoor farmers/flea markety type thing. it was a great vibe–perfect for just wandering through on a sunny saturday morning.
we stopped in the most amazing (and slightly claustrophobic) used bookstore. there are literally books everywhere piled to the ceiling–including in the bathroom and up the stairs. i’m pretty sure it’s a fire hazard, but it’s such a neat little shop. i could probably spend hours there.
we then walked through the neighborhood, which is full of beautiful brick rowhouses, to union station to hop on the bus and head out to georgetown.
we walked through georgetown, along the water and then up through some neighborhoods and over to the university.
after georgetown, we went back to mer’s place for a bit to rest our weary feet. brandon and i later headed back out to go see the mall all lit up at night–it had been recommended to see the monuments, especially lincoln and the vietnam memorial late at night.
