Trip Start Apr 11, 2005
54Trip End ??? ??, 2006
Well we made it. 7hr's 30mins some 3300miles and quite a smooth ride. we were let in to the country without a hitch too, a few finger prints and a picture taken and they let us in (we were surprised too!!!).
As suspected we were completely knackered by the time we got to the hostel again that trip went ok too a shuttle bus ride - Metro Ride - Taxi - and a short walk and we were here. The area is ok with lots of shops and restaurants around. However the hostel reminds me of some cop movie, you know the sort were they burst in a and chase someone up the narrow staircase which has old tiles running up it and some kids playing in the corridor at the top and then some old person that looks a bit strange opens the door to see what is going on etc etc (I know what I mean).
Today we saw quite a few sites the old post office was one of the first and well worth a visit if only to go up in the lift to the top with panoramic views from the tower as with quite a lot of buildings in DC it is old and was nearly pulled down until the Government ran out of money and the protesters got too much for them.
I will talk more about our site seeing in the next couple of days but time is running short and I must tell you that we are of to a Basketball Game tomorrow night. Washington Wizzards V Chicago its supposed to be quite a game mainly due to the rivalry due to the fact Michael Jordan used to play for both teams so we will let you know how that goes. Hooters is just up the street but KT has already stated that is of the sightseeing list (I believe there would be a lot to see!!!!)
Anyway by for now. hope everyone is ok and dont forget to leave comment in the guest book.
