Washington 7th to 9th January

Well, what a busy couple of days we have had. The 7th saw us just arriving into Washington by bus and having a pretty quiet night. The 8th was a day of walking and visiting all the LARGE monuments in Washington... we decided to do a walking tour where the guides work for tips. In Europe we found these tours fantastic as the guides have a genuine interest and passion for the history of the area. Today, we came to the sand conclusion on found the tour incredibly informative. Here is our day in pictures ... Washington monument





Vietnam veterans memorial


Lincoln memorial


Jefferson memorial


Visiting our mates Michelle & Obama





9th Jan Today we got up, had a yummy breakfast in the B & B we're staying at and headed into the city of Washington. We decided to go see the Whitehouse in the daylight


Wandered past the National Treasury


To the American History Museum A Couple of cool things - The first lady dresses





This was stunning, pictures do not do it justice, it was covered in swarkovski crystals too





Seeing these!!! The real ones :)


And then to top the day off we experienced this ...





SNOW!!! We also went into the American - Indian museum while the snow was getting heavier








My last picture of the snow - a lot heavier
