This card was originally sent from a Chinese girl to Irina, who lives in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. I mentioned I collect subway map cards, so Irina thought I’d enjoy this card more than her, and she sent it to me. So sweet of her! ๐Ÿ˜€ ย

United States Capitol

This card came from Sher from USA. ๐Ÿ™‚

The United States Capitol is the meeting place of the U.S. Congress, the legislature of the U.S. federal government. Located in Washington, D.C., it sits atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall. Though it has never been the geographic center of the federal district, the Capitol is the origin by which the quadrants of the District are divided and the city was planned.

Officially, both the east and west sides of the Capitol are referred to as fronts. Historically, however, only the east front of the building was intended for the arrival of visitors and dignitaries. Like the federal buildings for the executive and judicial branches, it is built in the distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior.
