DC Chinatown gate. There's not much of Chinatown left - Verizon Center took over much of it.
Getting ready for the first day of teachings and empowerments.
Tira Mi Su of DOOOOM.

A little better. Buddha in the middle, Kalachakra to the right, Kalachakra mandala to the right, White Tara to the right of the mandala. Not sure what the far left Thangka is.
That's the front of HHDL's car as he was on his way to meet the President.
Preparing for closing ceremonies.
