It’s been a while since I was down in Olympia (live on the east coast now) but I had to go and do a day of meeting with reps and try to advocate for the passing of legislation related to my profession while in grad school.

I seem to recall the guide that gave me an informal tour telling me that the only gold in the building (not being worn on people) was woven into a few state flags that were gifted from France. It could be a lie and I never sought to fact check, but it always stood out to me. It’s something I strangely think about to this day!

It was my first and only time in the capital, but there is some lovely architecture in Olympia!
