(A photographic tour)
I took a very Betsy/Arlene tour of DC this weekend. I’ll share some highlights:
We came up to this guy unsure of what building it was.
Upon further inspection, we thought it might be the White House, but we weren’t sure. There were some people taking photos in front of it, but not many. And there was no line of people or tour of any sort happening. We didn’t want to ask – because that’s embarrassing – so we contemplating pretending to be foreign and confused.
Finally we found a plaque stating that this white house was, in fact, THE White House. So we took some photos in front of it.
Of course the one time I visit DC, the Washington Monument is covered in scaffolding. It’s my least favorite monument anyway.
And I got to see it in the distance from a roof-top pool.
My cousin was too hung over, so this is as close to the Capitol Building as we got
Also, we drove by the Lincoln Memorial
A small tornado passed through the area and ended in a magical rainbow.
I tried Shake Shack for the first time because there actually wasn’t a 5-mile line wrapped around the building (granted it was 2am).
I finally had the lobster roll I’ve been craving.
I saw these kids playing
And I rode the subway, which is a clean, pleasant and sunny experience
All in all, very successful trip to my nation’s capitol. Mr. President, I shall be back. And next time, I’ll know where you live.
