The year 2014 was no more than a few days old as we arrived in the US capital. I have always wanted to go there. It is one of the absolute “power centers” of the world, with everything that comes of politicians, lawyers, journalists etc. But aside from that it is actually a quite beautiful city. Even though our expectations were high already, we were indeed very pleasantly surprised. The White House should - of course - be on the top of any visitors list. This is where most of the important decisions are made!
