Grandiose Things

I have one more image from my travels. I was struck by the Denver City Hall; I was checking for some signs it was a State-level building, but it seems to be the City and I guess "county" seat. It seems really grandiose for that, it looks like a great Roman palace or something. The US has this thing with their federal buildings, like the White House and Capitol, but it seems a bit much for a City Hall. Well, it's their tax money.

And speaking of grandiose things, the Queen Elizabeth was one of the "cruise ships" (technically, it's a liner, a heavier grade of ship) that visited Vancouver lately. While we were always aboard Big Sister the QM2, Cunard ships are just nicer.
