So what do you do when you are furloughed? We decided that traffic in and around D.C. mid morning wouldn't be bad considering the Federal Government was closed today. So Dawn and I went to the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America. Beautiful grounds and church. It was kind of like a pilgrimage for people who couldn't afford to actually go to the Holy Lands. They recreated many pilgrimage sites for you to visit on the grounds.
