My Mecca

... The Library of Congress, here's a little taste of Rick's and my conversation while touring it...

"Look Lauren, the Library of Congress, isn't that kind of your mecca?"
"Lauren, are you gonna close your mouth anytime soon?"
"Okay, you drooling about the books, it's kind of embarrassing me"
"I'm gonna have to carry you out of here, aren't I?"

I can't get over how great their collections and displays were. The building itself is amazing, as splendid as any cathedral or temple I've ever seen! When we got to the display of Thomas Jefferson's library I thought I was going to cry. Best of all? All this enjoyment was FREE!

I wish we could have gone into the main library part, that would have been great to see
