Day 8: Washington D.C

-Arlington Cemetry (This is a cemetry where politicians such as JFK, war heros's, the 3000 unknown solidiers and other famous Americans are buried. It a really cool place if thats not weird to say about a cemetry?? The change over of the guards ceremony there was really something to see too)
-Marine Corp Monument
-White House (Just as cool in the daylight as it was last night, but still wasn't any bigger...Obama was in there at the time!! We were like 20m's from him, wow i feel smarter already)
-Museum of Natural History (we got to see what we would look like as ape people!!)
-Museum of American History (got to see Julia Child's kitchen, Dorothy's ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz & Michael Jackson's Fedora)
-Holocaust Museum (Tahn's and I spent a few hours in there, just so much to see and its all real footage.....I saw a man dig a ditch and then they shot him into it, and them using a truck to move thousands of dead bodies, this place was really disturbing and upsetting but all the same I am glad I saw it)

Today was a free day for us so we got our geek on and saw some of the sights. The best thing about Washington is that everything is FREE all Smithsonian museums are free to see, this is a rarity in America and we sure want to lap it all up whilst we are here!! I got a skype account today and got to talk to jules which was amazing as I know we have only been gone a week but we have done so much I swear it feels like a month and today I missed home just a smidge!! Mum if your reading this check your phone, as I need you to create skype so I can see Tiger!! Currently Tahns and I are getting all hotted up to head out in Georgetown which is meant to be a really trendy area to a place called 3rd Edition, were drinking the cheapest alcohol in the world and ready to mingle with 50 of our new found friends! Will let you know how the night goes tomorrow!!
