    Washington D.C.

    July 28, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    La chiamano 'DC', il Distretto della Columbia, una cittá-stato senza rappresentanza un pó come il Vaticano eppure qui nel Capitol (Campidoglio americano) si prendono le decisioni piú importanti del paese. Oggi la pioggia, implacabile, sembra una metafora delle ombre che incombono sulla politica del paese.
    Washington é tutta un monumento sembra fredda ma dentro gli edifici ci sono i musei forse più belli del mondo. Oggi é la volta della Biblioteca del Congresso e della Biblioteca Shakesperiana, entrambe vantano il record del numero più grande di volumi del mondo nel loro genere.

    Hillwood House Visit

    August 19, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Another hidden gem in D.C. that I never visited before - Hillwood House. Marjorie Merriweather Post’s father started Post cereal and Postum (coffee substitute that my dad drank until it was discontinued). She bought this elegant Hillwood house and land in northwest Washington and lived their until the 1970s. She went to Russia in the late 30’s and purchased the most comprehensive collection of Russian imperial art outside of Russia. She also acquired an eighteenth-century French decorative art collection. The gardens are incredible with a Japanese, rose, and cutting gardens and greenhouse. After collecting all this exquisite arts, she donated it to the public to enjoy. Pretty spectacular. They also had a collection of Fabergé eggs on-site. Wonderful docent gave a great tour of the details of the place and special stories. The mid-century kitchen and “massage” room with the hair dryer and electric curler are just perfect 1950’s.

    I must say, this had a decidedly “gay” feel. Purple velvet drapes, opulence (or as Bob says - decorations up the wazoo), and my favorite, the entrance pins say “Fabulous”. Need I say more.

    Tag 6 - Washington D.C.

    June 23, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Was für ein Tag! Noch ein bisschen Schlaf während der Busfahrt nachgeholt, erwartet uns Washington mit einem extrem schwülen Wetter. Nach kurzem Check-in im Hotel ging es auf Richtung weißem Haus.
    Was soll man sagen, die Amerikaner kleckern nicht, sie klotzen! Eine Sehenswürdigkeit nach der anderen...

    Weißes Haus - Eisenhower Executive Office Building - nationales Denkmal des 2. WK - Lincoln Memorial - Washington Denkmal - Arlington National Cemetery - Pentagon (Memorial) - und vieles mehr

    Das Arlington National Cemetery war für mich sehr bewegend, vor allem am Grab von JFK war eine besondere Athmosphäre zu spüren. Die Masse an Gräbern macht sehr nachdenklich...
