Washington DC – June 2018 – Views of the City

A day and a half in DC gave the opportunity to visit numerous museums (later posts) as well as check out the town. This post are randoms views of the city.

Starting with an unusual view of the Washington Monument down the tracks.

A lone runner going past the capital. The reason there are no people around is the visitor center is underneath, and the police keep everyone off the steps.

For those who read this blog that are not from America – nearly every 8th grader (13-14 year olds) make a field trip to Washington DC. They always have matching shirts so their chaperones can keep track of them.

Apparently DC ducks don’t fly, so they have a ramp to get into the reflecting pool.
