Leaving Houston I caught the plane to Washington DC via Charlotte.
I was lucky enough to stay in a lovely hotel just three blocks away from the White House - so it was a great location to visit the famous sites, including a number of the seventeen museums in Washington DC which are part of the Smithsonian Institute and are free to visit.
Which was just as well because the day after I arrived it rained fairly relentlessly. So museums were a great way to pass the time. I visited:
- The Museum of American History
- The Hirschhorn Museum of Art
- The Museum of American Indians
- The National Portrait Gallery
All pretty good stuff! Here's just a few photos of my time in DC...
