July 18 – It was a hot day so we were glad to finally get inside for our tour at 1:50 in the afternoon. Some of the interesting things from our tour. Gabe liked that you can “play I spy all throughout the building.” There are many fun carvings and statues to spy as well as fossils embedded in the rocks that they used to build the “rebuilt” part of the capitol after the original wooden structure was burned in a fire. We were the only folks from the US on our tour. We had Canadians, Swiss, Indian, Iranian, and English – and those are just the ones I remember.
