We traveled a few nights ago on a "dusk" rather than moonlight tour of Washington D.C., and then we took another trip today. What a great city full of total touristy treats! I saw the Washington Monument, the newer World War II Memorial, and my personal favorite, the Lincoln Memorial. I remember seeing it on my 8th grade trip to Washington D.C. with my fellow classmates. It didn’t seem as big now as it did when I was 14. The weather was quite hot and muggy and sprinkled a little on us today, but that didn’t stop us from walking across most of the mall. (I keep forgetting there aren’t many stores at this mall :)) Oh yea, last night we were able to get to see the WORLD PREMIERE of the ATLAS REVEALED: CHINA – a new Discovery Channel feature to air this fall. It was amazing in the HD Theater at Discovery Headquarters in Silver Spring. I highly recommend this new series. We all commented after about the connections we felt to the featured people of the country. Can’t wait for the entire series! And then we feasted on Chinese food!!!
Here are some pictures of Donna and Vicki on their trip to Roosevelt Island.
