Hi guys,

Currently in Washington arrived last night, spent the night checking out a few of the historical monuments at night time including the white house, Washington monument and "The Capitol". Security everywhere, all through the night pretty creepy!

The next day we visited the Lincoln memorial, The national world war II memorial, the Korean war veterans memorial. We then went to the Holocaust museum.

We then visited the pentagon and the sight of the Sept 11 terrorism attack on the pentagon. The memorial at the sight was very interestingly designed and had seat shaped sculptures for each of the 184 people who were killed. Those facing the pentagon were those killed in the plane and those facing the opposite way were people inside the pentagon. They were arranged in rows with by what year they were born.

We then visited the white house again where they were setting heaps of stations for some live news feeds and the treasury office.

Very early tomorrow morning we are getting a bus back to new york (a couple of hours away). We are spending the day in new york and climbing up the statue of liberty into the crown because it was booked out when we were there then next stop, Orlando, Florida!

Until next time, much love, Natalie xx
