The day after Thanksgiving, I was able to take Vicky and Patrick to visit Washington D.C., the capital of the United States.  The pictures below tell the story.

After visiting the Capitol Building, we went to the Smithsonian Natural Museum of History.

Finally, as we were walking around the museum, we came upon this picture and display in an area dedicated to African History.  Patrick recognized the photo right away.  In his words, “This was an amazing experience because the photograph of the former vice president of Uganda, Dr. Specioza  Kazibwe is in there.”
