MLK Day: L.O.C and MLK Memorial Visit.

Last Monday, my friends and I decided to take advantage of the holiday. So we took off to the Library of Congress to see the Magna Carta tour. Magna Carta was a charter issued by...I could fill this whole post with the story or I could direct you here to read it yourselves. I chose the latter. It was issued in the year 1215, so this makes it the 800th year. In commemoration of the celebration of the first issue, the L.O.C put up an exhibition. It was interesting, to say the least. Plus even if I go the the L.O.C a hundred times, I will still be in awe of the magnificent architectural design each time I step in there. We also checked out the MLK memorial--duh! It was MLK day. And oh, have you seen Selma? What a beautiful movie! Anyway, check out more pictures from the day below...

Original copy of the charter! 800 years!!!

Many of these books belonged to Thomas Jefferson. I hear he couldn't live without books. Haha


Aww, people brought flowers. :-)

Just taking it all in...beautiful!

This cop! There's a funny story attached haha. 

These pictures remind me why I never upload pictures. It's a lot of work. I'll just stick to rambling, henceforth. It was worth documenting though. There are tons of pictures, but I had to stick with these. My phone decided to be dead that day. So I have to thank my friends for all the pictures. I hope you enjoy them.


P.S: Selma is realllyyyy good. I think the reason I am making so much noise about it is because it surpassed my expectations. I really did not expect much of it.
