Day 60: Washington, DC!

What went well? 

  1. Spent the afternoon exploring the Capitol and National Mall in DC, and basically saw all the major monuments:
  2. Metro station. Everything already looks "DC", as soon as you step outside!

    Capitol building

    Supreme Court

    Inside the Library of Congress

    Library of Congress

    Capitol Building

    Lincoln Memorial

    White House

  3. Am feeling grateful to my friend's friend's aunt, who is generously letting us stay at their place!
  4. It was so warm today!! We sat in the sun for awhile in the afternoon, and it was just so lovely to soak up the rays and doze off a bit in the warmth. Ahhhhhh...... #savouring

What did I learn? 

  • National Mall is HUGE. We walked all the way from the metro station to the end of National Mall, which was about 4.5kms, plus we took detours, then walked another 3 or so kms to where my friend's friend was parked...
  • Most of the museums and monuments are part of National Mall. You could spend days exploring just this area.
  • Apparently the Library of Congress is the largest library in the world! It also houses Thomas Jefferson's personal library.
