Flag of United States  , District of Columbia
Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Arrived Saturday evening checked out the area and got our bearings, we are staying in the uni district and it`s very convenient for the metro, which is much cleaner and more modern than New York by the way, spent Sunday doing the usual touristy things including going to the White House to see the president! not sure if he was home but his dog was as the kids were walking it on the lawn or should i say chasing it as it ran off and what looked like an aid had to retrieve it!!!! Getting to grips with way the Americans eat {which is all the time!} and where to do it economically, happy hour in the bars is popular , took Rowland the owl to meet his American cousin at the local Hooters bar { thought it only fair after meeting ours in new york} , think kev rather enjoyed it too,. Monday travelled to Arlington to see the cemetry and visited the Kennedy graves and the Tomb of the unknown soldier, there were thousands upon thousands of headstones, three funerals took place while we were there, never has it been more obvious that war is pointless. Visited the pentagon and saw the memorial for the 9/11 victims, very poignient and moving, it was a beautiful memorial garden. Off to chill for a bit before catching train to New Orleans the journey is 25 hours long,,,, oh my god this country is huge!!!! Found a small Mexican bar which happened to be serving the most amazing Mojitos and even better as it was happy hour !!!
