As you might have guessed by the title, I was in Washington DC this weekend. It was my first time there and I LOVED it. All of the old buildings, the museums, how easy their train system was to navigate--heck, the whole city was easy for getting around. I'll definitely be going back.
One of our first stops was Union Station, which I have to say, is better than Chicago's Union Station. I mean, look at this:
Our moonlight monument tour left from the station, and while we were waiting, I took an exterior shot. This turned out so cool mainly because I had the wrong setting on my camera; I didn't do any color correction in Photoshop (not that I would have known how, anyway):
My favorite place was the Library of Congress. This room probably has an official name, but I called it the atrium:
More wacky cloud action outside the train station again, this time by the Christopher Columbus monument:
Did you know THIS is actually the front of the White House? Normally we see the other side, so I guess the Presidents are just like everybody else and like to have their parties in the backyard:
And finally, some fly-overs in honor of the brand new Martin Luther King monument (at least, that's what we think they were for). Either way, cool:
Have you been to DC? What was your favorite thing? Anybody visited all of the Smithsonians? (We only saw two).
