DC Part 2

So here is the 2nd part of my blog about DC. The first is coming today sometime.

We got dropped of by the Lincoln Memorial and wandered around here. I was hoping that we would happen upon the Vietnam Memorial but we walked downt the oppiste side and saw the Korean War memorial. Along the walk we saw the World War II memorial. We eventually made our way over to the Washington Monument. The picture with all the stars is from there. We had plans of eating and staying late to photograph the White House at night but after wandering for a long while looking for a resturant we were more near our hotel than the White house so we decided to turn in.

The next morning we had breakfast at the hotel mine was very nice but Pia's not so much. I really liked the hotel we stayed in it was like a bed and breakfast. Our first stop was the White house. And we were stopped at a cross walk nearby by many police. We stood there a while and then tons of police on motorcycle came then two black cars and more police. I took some pictures just in case. Someone else asked the an officer if it was the President. He said no it was the Vice President. So we got to see Mr. Biden's car.

We got on the tour bus and rode around for the majority of the 2 and 1/2 hour tour. We saw many things including Ford's Theater, Dupont Circle, the National Cathedral which is pictured below, Embassy Row, Georgetown and more. We ended at Union Station where we ate lunch caught the bus to the closest stop for our bus home.

The bus ride home was crazy!!!! The driver wore and ipod, talked on the phone, texted, speed, had road rage you name it. We were so glad to be off that bus.
