Good afternoon everyone!
This is the last post of Washington, plus a little bit of Philadelphia.
Before I proceed, I notice that comments on my travelogue are getting lesser, I wonder why? May be some of you are becoming boring already, or most of you are away for holidays?
Anyway, just to let you know I'll be giving away some souvenirs I bought from US to my faithful readers, so if you are interested do keep the comments flowing in, who knows you might be the lucky one? ^^
Alright now I shall let the pictures do the talking.
These above pictures taken at a small park near the Lincoln Memorial building, each pillars represent different cities of US
There's also a big beautiful fountain
Some syok-sendiri shots
After several camwhoring photos, this friendly mama came over and asked if we needed her help to hold the camera, haha so shy :P
We had a quick photo stop at the Capital Hill, the largest historic residential neighbourhood in Washington.
That's the Capital Hill behind us
With Kelly, a new friend I met during the trip. She is Chinese but looks abit like mixed ;)
She is younger than me but some tour members commented she looks much matured than me, haha! :P
The nice sunset
We had western dinner at Washington, a restaurant called Legals.
New England clam choulder
Classic Caesar salad
Wood grilled Atlantic Salmon with grilled shrimp skewer
Wood grilled Filet Mignon
1 1/2 pound lobster
Legal's crab cake dinner
With some of the tour members
As mentioned we stayed only a night at Washington. The next morning, we took a 3 1/2 hours bus ride to Philadelphia. We had lunch at one of the restaurant at Chinatown.
The nice Fu Lu Shou (福禄寿) statues in the restaurant. Guests from around the world put notes all over them, I even saw a RM 10 note there ;)
Horse carriages everywhere! I love horsey! But pity them at the same times, cause they have to walk and walk and walk.....:(
The main attraction about Philadelphia this trip is the Independence Hall. The Declaration of Independence was adopted in 1776 here in Philadelphia so this is what makes it an important and historical city, though it's just a small city.
The Liberty Bell, a symbol of liberty for over 200 years
Taken a park nearby
Just want to share this useful parking system over there in the US. Definetely save space. I know some countries already adopt this pattern, wonder when will it comes to Malaysia? :P
Well that's the short post about Washington and Philadelphia. Probably nothing very special, cause the main attraction is NYC! Hehe ;) Will blog about it next. Thanks for reading!
