On Memorial Day.

This is just a brief recap of a visit to Washington D.C. that I took on May 30th – almost a week ago. I met Dovile Sukyte and we had a fantastic time walking though the unbearable heat during the festivities on Memorial day.

We ran into an old man who was selling old pins from the 60's and couldn't resist buying some. We were his first customers that day and he was rather happy about it too. I got the "United We Shall Overcome" from the times of the Civil Right Movement – a nice piece of history to have.

And you can't leave the city without visiting Abe.
