I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

A Capitol Time, continued

Blogger doesn't seem to like more than two images per entry, so here are some more pictures.

Sunday morning we had brunch at the Mansion on O Street. Julian Bond was at the next table.

Then we walked down to the concert at the Lincoln Memorial. The crowds were huge but good natured, and by the time we got there we couldn't get any closer than the Washington Monument. So we watched everything on a Jumbotron, dancing in the crowd until the cold seeping up from the grass through the soles of our shoes forced us to get out of the crowd and sit down. We could actually hear better from the side -- instead of the half second delay as the sound hit each set of speakers by each Jumbotron, we only heard the music once.
