You and the girls are walking towards the next destination on your 30 Plus Teams Tour of Washington DC , the Jefferson Memorial .
As you all continue to walk , you gaze at the body of water known as the Tidal Basin .
It’s a nice day and
even the geese who are in the water seem to be enjoying the day .
You can imagine how this is going to look when the Cherry Blossoms fully come out .
Even though it’s almost 11 am , the Jefferson Memorial seems to be another memorial that a lot of tourists don’t seem to visit a lot .
Could it be the out of the way location of the memorial ?
Or could it be how long it takes to get to this memorial ?
What ever the reason , the four of you are very happy that a lot of people aren’t here .
The shape of the building reminds all of you of one of the buildings on your college campus at the University of Virginia , down in Charlottesville , Virginia .
There’s a very good reason for this , though .
Not only did Jefferson design his own house , Monticello , he also designed that building at the University of Virginia .
It’s the building that looks like the Jefferson Memorial .
As the four of you walk up the stairs of the memorial , the first thing you see is the statue of the third president .
You all know from your American History classes that Jefferson was one of the tallest presidents , but the statue of him makes him look even taller .
You look around the rotunda of the building and it tells you all you need to know about Jefferson and all the positions he held , political and non political .
All four of you are dying to know when did this man have the time to run the country ?
Forget about being a Renaissance man .
How about multitasking ?
