I always try to find time to try and visit the National Geographic Society while I'm in Washington, DC. The Society is located right across the street from the NEA Building. The NGS always houses some of the most enjoyable exhibits that I've had the pleasure of experiencing. On this visit, photos from an exhibit entitled "The Spirit of Japanese Gardens" were featured. As you can imagine, the photographers did an incredible job showcasing the beauty and serenity of the gardens. For more about the NGS, check it out on-line at http://nationalgeographic.com/.
