... then headed out to see some of the sights by night. We passed a huge war memorial statue that looks like as you walk around it that the men are lifting the flag. We headed to the JFK centre which was built as a memorial to him. His wife Jackie didn't want anything built for him as she said he wouldn't have wanted that but the government insisted so she said if you want to build anything build a performing arts centre as JFK loved ...
