This building looks beautiful from outside. It is difficult to see inside though. There is a free tour in the noon. This Iconic building is the Symbol of Democracy.

First few times trying to find your way around can be pretty frustrating. Once you get the hang of it is much better. I think our representatives get used to real quick!

Fascinating to see our democracy in action. You might even catch a glimpse of people you've seen on the national news (or at least CSPAN).
