there is so much in d.c, i don’t know how you can do all of it even in a week. i think its almost impossible, although i think that is for most cities that you go to. there is always so much rich history, culture galore that there really is never enough time to see it all. no matter how much you may try. but i did dip my toes in just a bit to get a feel for it today and tomorrow i go back again for even more.
my friends and i that i went with today went to two museums and one monument. we checked out the natural history museum- oh man there is so much packed in there, the dinosaur exhibit is being renovated and won’t open back up until november. that really was a bit sad, but i suppose it just gives me something else to come back for. then we went into the air and space museum. can i just say i geeked out a bit in there and i am going back tomorrow just for the observatory and planetarium.
we also headed up to the lincoln memorial on our way out. i have to say it brought a tear to my eye once i got to the top and saw lincoln statue sitting and looking over all and i hope reminding us all the sacrifices that have been made for our country. well enough with my talk lets get to the pictures.
also no trip to washington d.c. is complete with out georgetown cupcakes, if they have the peanut butter chocolate you must get that one.
look out for part two of d.c.
