The name of this city springs an image of power, politics in our mind. As quoted in William Armstrong’s words, “In Washington D.C, politics dominate even the most casual conversation,” but there are so many layers of this amazing place that gets concealed under the veil of all these political perception, an inseparable part of that city. This city is indeed an intriguing admixture of agricultural, industrial and high–tech influences although retaining its cultural heritage and economy. This vigorous city is also popular for its lattes, software companies, music and its extensive outdoor adventure. As in words of John F. Kennedy, “Described Washington as a community of Southern efficiency and Northern charm.”
Standing on a bridge and gazing at the crimson hued sunset in the sky reflected across the glistening water of Potomac River…what an astounding sight it must present to behold. Dinaw Mengestu in his book entitled The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears so eloquently sketched the details of Washington D.C. that one will find himself being transported in the streets of that city. While talking about aesthetic beauty of this city, the Tidal Basin requires a mention. The mellifluous beauty of this reservoir with its luminous water rimmed by sweet scented, pink cherry blossoms can replenish the soul when it is in full bloom during spring.
