Familiar Sights

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.
