Hello my friends!

I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful card! Thanks to Ramón and Oleg! These two just started their own website and they sell really beautiful postcards of all the lovely places in D.C.
Also, they offer to send postcards on your behalf to friends, soldiers, or even the Congress and the president! This is so cool! Check them out here:

The United States Capitol, often called the Capitol Building or Capitol Hill, is the home of the United States Congress, and the seat of the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government. It sits atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Though not at the geographic center of the Federal District, the Capitol forms the origin point for the District’s street-numbering system and the District’s four quadrants.

Did you know?

Thomas Jefferson insisted the legislative building be called the “Capitol” rather than “Congress House”. The word “Capitol” comes from Latin and is associated with the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus on Capitoline Hill, one of the seven hills of Rome

I send love!.
