On today's tour, we're going to stop at the Kennedy Center. Sitting on the Potomac River, this performing arts center is a distinctive landmark in a city that is full of unique and interesting buildings.

After the show, head back to Dupont Circle and stop by Kramerbooks & Afterwords. This is one of my favorite places in D.C., as it seamlessly combines two of my favorite things: books and food. :)
Our last stop is the Korean War Veterans Memorial. Although this memorial isn't as well known as the other monuments, this is a haunting site that is definitely worth a visit.
A patrol marches through this memorial, and to their right stands a wall of images:
The wall is impressive in the daylight, but it really comes alive at night, when lights on the ground make the images glow, giving the whole thing a ghostly feel.
So that's it for the K's, folks. I hope you come back tomorrow for the letter L!
