I finally made it to DC. Dropped off my luggage at the relatives I'm staying at in Bethesda, and drove into the city.
On the way I stopped by the National Cathedral, which I first saw in that fantastic West Wing episode where Bartlet yells at God. The building is amazing, a perfect Gothic Revival structure. The photos don't properly capture its enormity.
Continuing on into the city, I was looking for a cafe with sandwiches, but I finally gave up and found a Subway which is almost as good. Now I'm devouring a chicken teriyaki sandwich on the infamous K Street and feeling exhausted. I'll try to get some work in, then go back to Bethesda and fall asleep.
Tomorrow I'll go to the Spy Museum and the Holocaust Museum.
