Spent a few hours this morning wandering around the White House and The Mall. There are so many familiar sights that it feels like I know the place already.
Two observations so far… the War Memorials have been really well done and there is no trashy hawking of momentos which is refreshing to see. I think even in England these days we would struggle to do things like this as well.
Secondly it is really humid. I have popped back to the hotel to cool down and have shower before heading back out. Luckily this isn’t too much of an issue as everything is within easy walking distance.
Happy birthday! I can’t believe it is 30 years since I was in Heath Road and Dad got let off for speeding by a nice policeman when he told him his first son had just been born!! The weather here seems to have picked up finally – we are waiting for Si & Fi toarrive – we will drink your health!!
Love Mum & Dad
