Hi everyone, my first blog away so hope you all received it OK.

Just got into New York but though I'd tell you about my time in DC. Well if called the title the day I meet the president because today I saw black out cars leaving the white house and helicoppers land on the white house lawn, very cool. Although the security around the white house Is crazy, you can't get that close.

In the morning I woke up pretty early and had breakfast with Crystal dad (David, he then gave me a ride to the metro and I headed to L'efant Plaza, right near the central mall area. I did the whole tourist thing, The Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln memorial, White House, Jeffeson etc etc.

The day was blazing hot, but clever Hodge took a mac and the mother of all storms kicked off later that day. The best thing about DC is that everything is free, the worst thing is that tickets for major attractions go before 9am, I did manager to get on a tour of the capitol, but missed out on the lift to the top of the washington monument.

Highlight of the day was definetly the Lincoln Memorial, its like a Greek Temple and the statue is really cool.

After a long day we had a burger in a traditional diner, good finish to a great day.

Enjoy the pictures....
