Take a vacation—it’s good for the soul. Mine ends here :)
The Library of Congress.
Current exhibitions include Books that Shaped America (to add to my reading list) and Hope for America: Performers, Politics and Pop Culture.
After submerging in Paris as an undercover tourist for so long, I felt estranged from American history and culture when I got back to California.
A stop in New York City and Washington DC should do the trick, I thought. I could be a tourist at home.
