Heading off from Boston in the morning, we got the metro all the way to the terminal door. The airline was quick to check us in and get on the plane. Although, we chose to move seats so we were more comfortable and not on an exit. Things got lively when a bunch of air force guys sat behind us. They were a good group though.
Getting off …
... the end of the day. Brian begged for his trip in a taxi all day long, he was so excited. Bella waved hi to the several thousand people that we walked by throughout the day. The kids loved watching a street performer play the "drums" on plastic buckets for tips. We ended the hot day at the hotel swimming pool and ordered a pizza since we were too tired to do anything ...
Today was a crazy day. I rode through a town called Upperville about 20 miles out of Winchester which was very cool. It was out in the middle of a bunch of really well landscaped horse properties. The middle of town was full of really old stone and brick buildings that were from the 1800's that still had people living in them. About 25 miles from Upperville I rode into Shantilly which got crazy. There were cars everywhere and the traffic was heavy for about 25 ...
... to me in a way that I finally understood. It is pretty incredible to think that we worked so closely together on our missions to discover space in the middle of the war when we thought either one of us would attack the other at any given moment.

The trip to DC has been amazing. I loved seeing the Lincoln Memorial. I also liked seeing the Spy Museum and acting like a secret undercover spy. I hope I get to go to Washington DC again sometime in my lifetime.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoward Johnson Express Inn - Washington Washington DC
When the cab driver doesn't even want to take you to a hotel, it's a concern. Got into the room and it was clean and the bed comfortable. Went for dinner, came back to 8 cop cars in the car park and the lobby blocked off. While it's one of the cheaper places to stay, it's not convenient to public transport and is in a seedy area. If staying here, I would recommend cabbing it to Union station. Overall though, it wasn't too bad provided you keep the doors locked and stay alert to any possible dangers.
