A Closer Look

Yep, I'm under the Star-Spangled Banner standing at the entrance to Union Station.  Did you know that the thirteen stripes on the American flag represent the 13 original colonies?  When you venture to the Nation's Capital, make sure you schedule a train ride.  It's always one the highlights of my trip here.
What's really interesting is that so many Europeans ride the rail because that's the way they get around in their homeland.  You'll make new friends from around the world when you step into a passenger car,  play cards in the lounge car, or have a meal in the dining car.
