Flag of United States  , District of Columbia
Thursday, February 5, 2009

Washington was the perfect place to end our history lesson. The town was built after all the action in Boston and Philly, so we had accidentally followed the USA's path nationhood (I hope that's a word).
We stayed a short distance from Watergate and made the most of the Trolley tour that encircled the touristy part of town.
The highlight for me was the Smithsonian Museum. The huge foyers were packed with airplanes from every era and continued on into space-travel. I couldn't resist a Seinfeld tie-in and purchased an Astronaut Pen before we continued on our tour of the Capital.
