get your capitol fix
last thursday i went on a tour of the capitol with moníka. she had never been before and it had been a long time since i'd been in there, at least a decade or more, so i was eager to go too. i'd have to say it's one of the states best architectural treasures by far. there was hardly anyone in there so it was just moníka and i, and we lucked out big time by getting a really cool tour guide too (if you go ask for jamison). the young kid knew his stuff, and we spent almost a half hour alone discussing just the details of the murals in the vestibule. most of the observation deck was closed except for one part, and we were bummed that the very top was close but still it was pretty cool. all total we were in there almost two hours and we didn't see everything. if you haven't ever been, you definitely should check it out. they have free tours every day of the week.
