Palo Alto Students Report from Inauguration

Original post made by Wes Rapaport, Midtown, on Jan 21, 2013

Our penultimate day in DC - began at dawn - with a walk to the Capitol where our small party soon enlarged to one million as we progressed to the Mall through two checkpoints. After the Inauguration, gratified emotionally but physically spent we made our way to the 1300 block of Pennsylvania Avenue to the National League of Cities for an afternoon of snacking and networking with representatives of cities from all over the nation. The view of the parade and the Capitol skyline from the fifth floor office suite and balcony were nothing less than spectacular.
