30 Jan X-T2 in Washington D.C.

On January 20th, 2017, the United States of America swore in Donald Trump as their 45th president. It was a cloudy weekend in Washington D.C. with some light rain on and off and temperature of around 10°c. Although the weather was fairly mild, the energy around was nothing but. With the Women’s March scheduled for the day after and the large amount of anti Trump protestors flooding the streets, political opinions clashed and a great American divide surfaced up throughout the Capitol. The tension on the street was obvious but not violent, subtle yet concerning.

A while back during the early stages of elections, my friend Marcin and I decided to make the trip to Washington D.C. for the inauguration regardless of who ended up winning. It would have either been a first woman president, a first Jewish president (before Bernie Sanders dropped from the race), or Donald Trump. We figured that any outcome would make for a very interesting and intense weekend in the American capitol. I have always been fascinated with the United States and what I like to call the concept of “America”, and this was a great opportunity to get another insight into this extremely intricate society.
