Foggy Bottom

Washington, United States

After a day of doing nothing apart from shop (or play pool in a bar for an hour, Sunil will tell u he won every game but its not true) and drink in the basement we decided to go and do some sightseeing! So we managed to the leave the hostel before midday for once and decided to go to the natural history museum, which I have to say was pretty disappointing even the one in Liverpool is better! We then ambled to the Washington monument...although to be honest I'm stillno wiser as to what this represents because all the tickets for the day had gone. So we walked round a lake to the Jeffereson Memorial which was pretty impressive, and then on to the Lincoln memorial via a Roosevelt memorial, a WWII memorial and the reflection pool (which only made sense when we got to the top of the stairs at the Lincoln memorial). The Lincoln memorial was once again pretty impressive, the two are definately the best we've seen since we have been here. We also decided to visit the Einstein monument, which apparantly if you rub his nose then you get get more intelligent...so given the majority of Americans need for this you can imagine how it was...but the way they climbed all over the monument seemed if anything disrespectful. We then headed upto Foggy Bottom, for no other reason than it was a place called foggy bottom! So its our last full day here today (which we will spend watching footy) and then tomorrow its off to Chicago on an incredibly long train ride. So I'll update you guys from there xx
