We walked to see the monuments and historical buildings today and to check out the mall.
We stopped at the Shake Shack for a burger and fries for dinner. It was a pretty good dinner.
We saw the White House, Lincoln memorial, Vietnam memorial, and all the other buildings in the area. There were a number of Different schools visiting so we tagged along one tour and learned some new information.
The photo associated with this blog is of a man blowing a horn, like the one used to bring down the walls of Jericho, at the Lincoln memorial. Police stopped him as it is supposed to be a place of silence. At first we thought it was some sort of ceremony until a few policeman came over. But I did get a picture before they made him stop.
The walk back was long as we were super tired. We did stop for a krispy kreme donut to top off the night.
Now time to rest my legs and get some sleep.
