Canadians welcome Obama in D.C.
A friend of mine who grew up on Whidbey Island, Christy Grant, is back in Washington D.C. for the 56th Presidential Inauguration. Not as a visitor, but on the job. You can read more about Christy's assignment in my Seattle P-I blog.
Christy took a number of pictures, including this one of the Canadian Embassy, located on Pennsylvania Avenue. What a nice, warm welcome for the 44th President of the United States.
Thank you and Merci, Canada!
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
