Washington National Cathedral and lunch

Just two Metro trains and a brisk 1 mile walk from Silver Spring is the Washington National Cathedral, built on a hill (mountain to Easterners) northwest of the Capital Mall. Built with private monies on private land the name "National" does not nor should it imply any official affiliation with the US government. Construction began in 1907 and completed in 1990.

Then down the hill (a mile) and two Metro trains to Ben's Chile Bowl. We lined up in the alley in a chilling winter wind; 15 minutes later were in (or as they say in the east "on line") waiting to place our order; yes it was good eats.
