On Tuesday morning an old friend of mine and I decided to take a break from the ordinary to play tourist in the District of Columbia. We started out with breakfast at Pho 75 in Falls Church for a small bowl of flank steak soup to warm us on such a cold day. We took the subway from Dunn Loring to the District to see a few art galleries and the Cheery Blossoms.
The Yoshino cherry trees were a gift from the Japanese ambassador and his wife in March 1912. These trees are the predominant species in the park and align the northern bank of the Potomac River. During peak season the Tidal Basin looks like fluffy pink and white clouds. It was a beautiful day to get away from the daily grind.
