Case and I flew on a plane (super super early) on Saturday morning with dreams of smithsonians, fall foliage and monuments. It was four and a half magnificent days of squirrels, The National Cathedral, Wisconsin Avenue, Cactus Cantina, walking, a flea market within steps of our hotel, a city tour, patriotic music at 8 am each morning (I still don't know where that was coming from, but it was quite charming) Cake Love, Ben's Chili Bowl, M Street, the metro, The National Mall in the daytime, The National Mall in the evening, bus rides, maps, Arlington National Cemetery, oak trees, Julia Child's kitchen and Dorothy's ruby slippers at The National Museum of American History, The Newseum, stunning and inspiring photography exhibits, clear blue skies, Taj of India, late night cannolis, The White House, friendly people, protesting people, popcorn in the park, Georgetown, lush, and drinking chai tea at the communal table at Le Pain Quotidien.
......
Being in Washington DC is like climbing right into the most interesting absorbing history book and seeing it come alive right before your eyes, while getting to enjoy the very best food at the same time, ah, warm memories and the desire to go back again and again.

I've never been, but I would absolutely love to change that. Your description may have placed DC a little higher on my list of places to visit than it already was. :-)
