    en dehors du manque de banc, Alexandria a l’air d’etre une belle ville.
    La vieille ville est elle importante ?

    “Other than lacking benches, Alexandria seems to be a pretty town. Is this old town important?”

    Oui, Alexandria est un peu importante. Elle est situeé 7 miles de Washington, DC à l’autre côté de la rivière Potomac. George Washington, “père” de notre pays, passais beaucoup de temps ici. En plus, sa maison à Mt. Vernon est très proche. Maintenant elle est beaucoup visiteé par les touristes a cause de la quantité de vieux batiments preserveés.

    Yes, Alexandria is a little important. It’s located 7 miles from Washington DC, on the other side of the Potomac River. George Washington, “father” of our country, spent a lot of time here. Also, his house at Mt. Vernon is very close. Now a lot of tourists come here because of all the old preserved buildings.

    Santy, I found the lines of the brick wall, the lines on the lamp and the lines of the shutter to be very pleasing and harmonious. I also was attracted to how the lighting at that moment made the shutter slats so luminous.
