My Costa Rican family and I went to Washington D.C. to visit their embassy. We left enough time to visit some monuments and museums during our time there, but not a lot of time. My concern for the trip was safety and having enough time to make the 8 hour drive back to Ohio. My husband's concern was just having a good time. Here is one of our conversations. :)
Sara: "There's so much that I want to see! I wish we had more time."
Marco: "Well, we can stay out late and come back in the morning."
Sara: "No way! I'm not walking around Washington DC at night! It's dangerous!"
Marco: "It's not dangerous. Obama lives there. It has to be safe."

Me, Marco and Melba (my mother in law)
The embassy of Costa Rica!
Turns out we DID stay out late. This is what we saw at night...
It was really pretty. And we stayed safe. :)
