D.C. & Richmond, Museums, Art, Family

I spent the entire month of November traveling, seeing family and taking some time to myself. The first two weeks were spent in Colombia preparing for the wedding, celebrating and enjoying time with the family. We then took off to spend a week in Caribean resort in Baru.

 

Then I spent a week in the east coast. While I love Seattle and couldn't see myself anywhere else at this moment, there is a certain romanticism to the east coast that just gets me every time. Maybe it's my history with the place, maybe it's the beautiful architecture, or the free museums but I just really enjoyed spending some alone time there.

 

First I spend the day in D.C. and visited the Hirshhorn, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery of Art and a couple other museums. Ai Weiwei at the Hirshhorn stole the show... best show I've seen in a long time!!

 

I spent thanksgiving with my cousins and a few other family members in the Maryland suburbs. There is something weirdly comforting about those fleeting visits, maybe it's the memories from those strange high school years.

I took some time to take a trip to Richmond, VA, to visit one of my favorite people in the world. Casie and I went to school together and only see each other every once in a while but it just never changes. Richmond is such a beautiful city and this is only my third time there. Maybe it was the fall or the circumstances, but this time around it just seemed more beautiful than ever.
I also got to spend some time in Baltimore, where I went to school for four years. Once again it felt strange to be in a place so familiar and yet so unfamiliar, populated now with new faces and attitudes. The neighborhood looked more beautiful this time around as well, my distance from it has allowed me now to see it differently.
