On Thursday and Friday, we set out to see as much of the sites outside as possible since it was sunny out. We knew that Saturday and Sunday would be rainy and cold, so we walked as much of the Mall as possible. I was quite impressed with us walking the whole rectangle of the Mall, visiting the Washington Monument first [we couldn’t get in from the reconstruction still going on], the whole length of the Reflecting Pool, to the Lincoln Memorial. We sat on the steps for awhile, soaking in the beauty of the Capitol [and taking a rest stop from all that walking!].

It was so hot by the time we got to the bottom of Lincoln Memorial. I was peeling off layers and sweating up a storm when we took this picture! I got someone standing nearby to take the pics of us, and my friends helped take pics of me at the Vietnam Memorial.

I finally got tickets to see the US Capitol. We did the tour inside, and then went to the East side of the Capitol to take some pictures. Because it was so cold, coupled with President’s day holiday, there were barely any people in front. I took advantage of the space, made a makeshift tripod from my gloves, and set up the self timer.
