Five Days in D. C.

On November 16th, Dimitris and I boarded a Southwest Airlines plane and flew to Ronald Reagan airport in Washington, D. C. The challenge was to see in four and one-half days as much as we could see in the nation’s capital. Utilizing the Metro system and the Hop-on/Hop-off buses were integral to our getting around as quickly as possible. The Metro immediately became an asset as we had to use it in order to get to our tour bus starting point at Union Station. The buses were a challenge as different colored buses went to different parts of the city. When we got off one bus, the wait for the next bus was sometimes much longer than the predicted thirty minutes. We ended up spending two complete days riding off and on buses and saw many major sites including the Washington monument, the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, Arlington cemetery, the White House, the Pentagon mall, etc. Our only Smithsonian stop this trip was at the National Postal Museum. A follow-up trip would be to investigate all of the museums. My future citizen partner was enthralled with the city and kept me on the go.
