Eastern Market Fire

When Eik and I lived in D.C. one of our favorite typical saturday morning outings was to the Eastern Market on Capitol Hill. We loved the festive atmosphere, the flee market, the latino tortilla place, and especially the cheese shop in the market itself, and the soap lady, did I mention the soap lady.

Anyway, a fire ripped through the building causing 20 million dollars worth of damage.

This is such a beautiful place to spend a Saturday morning and we're deeply saddened by it's destruction. Maybe by the time we end up back in d.c. it will be all fixed up and pretty. :-)
