morning. Free tour.

Hostel for a nap

National Theatre to
enter lottery to get discounted tickets to West Side Story - unfortunately
didn't get them.

Met up with Tom Liu
for dinner in Chinatown - really good & big.

Drinks at Sports Bar
at Verizon Centre (where Washington Wizards play), hoping to watch the game.
Found out the game was the next day.

Back to hostel.

Day 3:

Up late

Went to Georgetown to
meet Tom for a tour of Georgetown University campus & Georgetown itself.
Very impressive campus.

Went and saw all the
monuments - went up the Washington Monument, saw Jefferson Monument, FDR
Monument, WWII, Vietnam, Korea War memorials, Lincoln Monument.

Went to National
Theatre again to enter lottery again to try and get tickets. Again unlucky. Amy

Back to the hostel to
do some washing & get ready for early morning bus.
