i'm currently in dc for work but i managed to sneak away and explore a bit since this is my first time in our nation's capitol. i hardly got to see everything i wanted to see but i saved the real real good stuff for my trip back in a couple months with my honey. here's a list of the few things i conquered today (thanks to a few awesome recommendations from a fellow blogger).
1. newseum -- breathtaking and jawdropping. i got lost in this wonderful tribute to photojournalism and traditional journalism.
2. holocaust museum -- i'll be returning to this tribute in a few months but i did get a chance to tour a few of the exhibits, they were equal parts heart wrenching and utterly moving.
3. lincoln memorial -- wow. wow. wow. and i saw it during the day. i hear the night time will completely knock your socks off. i shall wait to see this one under the light of the moon in a couple months with my honey.
4. Navy concert band -- at the U.S. Navy memorial -- this was a chance stumbling as i was walking back to my hotel after dinner (talk about lucky)!
and lastly this day could not have been possible without the help from my friends at tour mobile -- such a great sightseeing tour company. they have stops throughout the city and you can hop off and hop on at your own pace.
