    A GU history professor on Meetup hosted a walking tour covering the entire scope of GU's existence from the 1700s to the present day focusing on the institution's involvement with slavery and explaining the District of Columbia's slavery legacy as well. He was extremely well informed and insightful and took many questions from the crowd. His series of talks is called "the Virtual Academy".

    Kind of hidden on 16th street but really worth a visit. And it's free. Mansion built in 1910 for the U.S. Treasury Secretary. It was long tome Mexican Embassy. Murals done by famous Mexican muralist Roberto Cueva in 1933. Various temporary exhibits that change regularly. Concerts occasionally. Now houses the Cultural section of the Mexican embassy. Open to public Monday to Friday 10 am to 6 pm and Saturdays during exhibitions from 12 to 4 pm.

    While the building is impressive, I wonder just how much it is actually used. I must comment that the cafe/deli in the building serves very good food at a reasonable price, and it opens early enough to be able to eat breakfast there prior to any meetings you might be attending.

    The day we visited there was a wonderful exhibit of the Queens of Egypt. It was a wonderful exhibit and the grandchildren loved doing the scavenger hunt that was offered. The museum was beautifully layed out the exhibits were well defined and explained. I am so happy we went. I don't know how long this particular exhibit will be there but I would check to see what was there when you visit DC. It is a small uncrowded museum.

    My brother is a recent aerospace engineer grad so we stopped by the building to see the displays and visit the gift shop for some cool souvenirs. Then someone let us know about the library on the east side of the building. We went and the staff was so friendly and enthusiastic! They gave us a short tour and then had tons of FREE books, stickers, posters, notebooks, etc and told us to help ourselves. My kids LOVED the things I brought back for them. This was a fun, unexpected experience in DC and I highly recommend it!

    I had a stroke and could not walk. Because of the inability to walk my legs became very swollen. Also, my right hand was partially unable to be used. I saw Victoria Goldsten at the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine for lymphatic drainage massage, for my swelling and to do range of motion for my right hand. My swelling improved and was able use my right hand more effectively. Victoria's therapy was very helpful.

    Previous to my stroke I had a problem with fibroids. My doctor told me I had to have a hysterectomy. I called Victoria and asked her if she could help. She said she could. She saw me for a natural health care exam and recommended homeopathic remedies. The remedies shrunk my fibroids and never had to have the hysterectomy.

    Victoria is a nurse/massage therapist that is certified as a complementary and alternative medicine nurse and also has an advanced degree in homeopathy. I highly recommend Victoria at the Washington Institute.
