I am a philosopher, software engineer, and burgeoning photographer based in California.
While vacationing in the Netherlands, I had an opportunity to go to Friesland and see the small town of Ureterp where some of my ancestors lived before emigrating to the United States.
One of the draws of a capital city is the spectacular architecture. Washington D.C. is no exception. As I was walking down the Mall, I couldn’t help but think that this is a little what ancient Rome must have been like, except that we have substituted temples for museums.
