Washington DC

March 20-26th


Every year, Python, the programming language that Jimmy programs in, holds a conference in Washington DC and for the 1st time, Jimmy planned on attending (of course, not without much persuasion from Madeline, who has never been to DC). Hoping the conference would coincide with the cherry trees blossoming, we started planning our trip in January. While Jimmy spent his days at George Washington University in conference rooms, Madeline explored the city, its great monuments, memorials and museums.
