USA trip. Day two December 28th 2009. Washington, DC

It's SOOO cold! After some room service breakfast, we went out to see the sites. And I bought new gloves and ear warmers!

We started off by looking at the White House from both sides, and saw the White House Christmas tree... with a little Amtrak train running around the bottom! (we are catching Amtrak from DC to NY and then to Boston).



Next was the Washington Monument - it was soooo cold I think my fingers could have snapped off! Then we went on to the war memorial, the reflection pool (from Forest Gump!) which was frozen!! It gets cold in Melbourne - but not where lakes friggen freeze over!!! and the Lincoln Memorial.






We ended up at the Air and Space Museum in the Smithsonian for the afternoon - mainly to keep warm! It was heaps of fun though - and had the biggest Maccas EVER! Then had seafood for dinner, Mazz and I watched Soriety Row in the hotel room - not as lame as it looks!
