如果说夏日的巴伐利亚是浪漫而 温情 的，那冬日的巴伐利亚就是 神秘 而梦幻的。 崇山峻岭、险峻 峡谷 间纷纷出现晶莹剔透的 巨型 冰柱，俨然一个惊艳无比的冰雪王国。 This bronze statue of George Washington was cast in 1853 from the original 1790 marble version, by French sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon. It’s one of several sculptures depicting various US presidents and historic figures in the Capitol building’s rotunda, the second-floor space beneath the Capitol dome. Tours of the building take visitors through the rotunda, where frescoes decorate the walls and, from time to time, ceremonies are held to acknowledge important dates and people. Today being Presidents Day, chances are the rotunda will be crowded with tourists, watched over by the bronze likeness of Washington as they pass by.
