One of the dvds I received from zip.ca was about the US Presidential memorials. While I was watching it, I remembered our trip to Washington D.C. in September 1989. We only spent about six or seven hours in the city but managed to hit a few of the sights.
Nice mullet, too. And that was about 25 pounds ago. Oh, metabolism, I miss you so! Anyway, I thought I had a photo of me in front of the Washington monument, but no, it was the big fella. I got to pose in front of the Capitol building. So much history in such a small area – the National Mall, the Lincoln Memorial (the reflecting pool!), the Smithsonian museums (where we spent most of our day) That was a fun trip – we did a road trip from here to the Eastern Seaboard, south to DC, Philadelphia, Boston, Maine, back via Vermont, Quebec and Ontario. I’d love to go back to DC some day; there was so much more to see. We had to run past the Vietnam Veterans Memorial because a tow truck was approaching to haul our car away. They were pretty serious about their rush-hour parking restrictions!
