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.
Stores near Eastern Market
The Eastern Market interior. I was surprised how small it was.
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.
The aforementioned police.
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.
The view down the Mall
A well protected fountain
The famed Watergate Hotel/Apartment Complex.
And finally a ride on the Metro.
