Quiet Capitol

Earlier this week, business took me to the state capital, Sacramento. I snapped these photos of the capitol building. It was just as quiet as the photos showed -- no one going in or out. I guess the stress of dealing with the state budget has worn everyone out.

Two things I noticed about the neighborhood around the capitol building: everything shuts down at 5 pm. Even the local Rite Aid closes at 5. The only exception: watering holes. The other is that the city seems way too small to contain all of the legislators, bureaucrats and lobbyists that inhabit Sacramento.
