Why I Love DC: Zeus…

DC is a very “walk friendly” city. During the summer months I try and take the boys for long walks past the Capitol building near the Library of Congress because it’s a really beautiful walk. One of my favorite things on this walk would be this statue:

Yup, that is Zeus in all his glory. The first time I saw the statue I did a double take assuming I missed the fig leaf. Zeus is well endowed and he wants everyone to know it. Zeus is not modest at all. I have been fortunate enough to be present when Boy Scout troops and little old ladies first encounter Zeus and it is hilarious. Never gets old.
