After a 26-hour ride on the train, we finally arrived in Washington,D.C. for Lexie’s conference. Union Station was massive and absolutely beautiful. We had so many suitcases, that I felt like the Beverly Hillbilles as we made our way out to the curb to hail a cab.
The first half-day after arrival, the four of us tossed our luggage in a beautiful room on the seventh floor of the Omni Shoreham and did a quick walk-around of the luxurious hotel. We admired the crystal chandeliers in the lobby, and realized that we were in the same hotel as the famed Blue Room, which hosted a number of inaugural balls over the years and was the home-away from home for the Beatles when they first came to the states back in the early 1960’s.
