On March 31, 2019, I walked around the National Mall in Washington D.C. and visited the cherry blossoms in the Tidal Basin. This was one day before the predicted peak bloom this year when 70% of the blossoms of the Yoshino cherry trees that surround the Tidal Basin are open. I also went inside the West Building of the National Gallery of Art, the Archives of American Art Lawrence A. Fleischman Gallery, and the National Portrait Gallery. Below are some pictures taken in Washington D.C. while visiting the cherry blossoms and museums mentioned above.

So in case you were not yet aware, I have recently moved out to the Washington D.C. area upon completing my masters degree in Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. I am now living in Northern Virginia (specifically Rosslyn, Virginia, which is in Arlington County). I am now working for a company called Ellumen, Inc. in the Rosslyn area. Here are some recent pictures I took while walking around the area after work.
