A civic education

I spent a few days in DC and found out just how much I don't know. First off, it turns out the building pictured to the left is, in fact, the capitol building, not the white house. Oops. Second, the Library of Congress is not a library you can just read in (like the New York public library). Bummer. Third, I can eat and really like pesto. Yum.

Fourth, Pearl Jam has lots of awesome music I haven't heard. Well, hadn't - until I went to their concert. Amazing, even from the nosebleed seats.

Also in DC: Marvins (crowded), Mini Cooper (surprisingly spacious), sushi (excellent), the Hulk (mediocre) and Guitar Hero II on Xbox (solid fun).
