The Library of Congress is BEAUTIFUL! These pictures are from the Jefferson Building, but there are multiple buildings that make up the Library of Congress.
That is the ceiling. And these are some pictures from around the lobby. You can't take pictures in most of the rooms, which is unfortunate, but understandable. Considering one of the rooms has Jefferson's personal collection of books, I wouldn't want camera flashes ruining them either!
The main library portion was amazing and there were actually people in there doing research! Now that I have my library card, I wonder if I can get in there. When I got my card, I wanted it as a souvenir, but the secretary lady said that isn't allowed- so I told her I would be doing research with my new card :)
These are tea bags that were in the gift shop. The famous figures hang over the side of the cup while the tea steeps! I should have bought them.
After going to the Library, we were headed to Hill Country to watch the TCU game. We were a little bit early and we heard some music from down the street, so we decided to check it out.
The pictures aren't the best because we weren't actually allowed in the concert area (you needed tickets), but we could still see pretty well. And you'll never guess who it was! ..........
It was Sean Paul! He was performing in the middle of the street at an event before his concert in Philly that night! We heard him sing Temperature and it was awesome!
Let's make a deal to skip over the rest of my afternoon. I don't want to talk about how terrible TCU did in our game and why we did horribly (cough Casey cough).
That night, the Rumble was on, which is the debate between Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly. I watched that with a bunch of people from my apartment building and then just chilled for the rest of the night. It was a busy day, but full of good surprises!
How did your football team do this weekend?
Did you watch the Rumble? If not, I recommend that you do! It was so funny!
