Good day folks!
I want to quickly blog about my US trip before 2012 ends, hehe.
Washington, the capital city of US is the first stop for our US trip, but it's only a short stay, only one night. But I think we covered those famous spots already.
Knowing that we are going to Washington, President Obama was re-elected a day before we reached Washington. Wakaka *muka tebal* :P
Hubs and I at Toronto airport, taking Air Canada to Washington, the flight is about 1 hour plus only
Upon reaching Washington, we had our lunch at one of the shopping mall
CVS pharmacy. I really love the express checkout system! Just scan your own items and pay, very quickly done, certainly can avoid waiting at the long queues at the cashier
We passed by the Pentagon
The national mall and memorial park, also the Washington monument. Photo taken in the coach
Then we arrived at the White House, the official residence and principal workplace for the president of US. Of course we can't go in so this is the nearest spot to take photos.
There were constructions in the front
Saw a group of people with their cool bikes! Hmm not sure what is it called though :P
We also walked around the place and got closer to the Washington Monument, built to commemorate the first American president, General George Washington.
You may notice there are several shots which I sat on the grass. I don't know but I find these pictures very natural, hehe. I don't mind to dirty my pants! :P
Squirrels are everywhere and they are very daring! Unlike those at our countries!
Very strong wind! But Washington is slightly warmer than Canada, weather is still tolerable for me there
Next station was the Lincoln Memorial, built to honor the 16th president of US, Abraham Lincoln.
Hah! I have seen enough of the huge him in movies (such as Night at the Museum & Transformer), now finally get to see him in real person!
The Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument is somehow at the same line...
The background is also one of the scene you might remember in the movie Transformer
After visiting this place, we gotto walk all the way to the other side to take the bus. It was a very long evening walk, probably about 2-3km?
Here's me. How, got look like celebrity or not? Kekekeke *blek*
There's still another post of Washington which I'll share next, after that, it'll be all about NYC! So please bear with me ya! ^^
