Washington, DC: Jefferson Memorial

One can safely say now that I have a new-found love for Washington, DC: a vibrant, fascinating city that makes you feel alive. It constantly changes and surprises: one minute you see a fox nonchalantly perambulating around the Jefferson Memorial, the next you are stopped in your tracks by a most breathtaking sunset over the Washington Monument. Within minutes, in front of your eyes the skies go from warm milky grey to salmon pink and then bright orange and burgundy, and your heart fills with gratefulness for the treat gifted by the city. The city that I visited many times previously but with which I never actually connected. Before now.

Вашингтон — это динамичный город, который не перестает удивлять. То своей плоской архитектурой (ни одно здание в городе не должно быть выше памятника Вашингтону), то представителями дикой природы, мирно прогуливающимися посреди пешеходных улиц, то потрясающими закатами, когда небо прямо перед глазами становится из молочно-сероватого ярким оранжевым или розовым, наполняя сердце чувством благодарности. Благодарности за такое красивое зрелище и такой интересный город.
