Mandy and I have been in Washington D.C. since Saturday (day after Christmas). We got in that afternoon after a rather pleasant airline experience, which is surprising considering the circumstances. We had very little hassle through security, no delays, and we had a prompt take-off after boarding.

Sunday was spent touring the Smithsonian. We hit a total of six museums which, thankfully, were in close proximity to each other. That took the entire day, and wore us slap out. Room service that night which watching The Invention of Lying. Pretty good movie, but could have been better.

Monday was our planned visit to the capitol, which was cool. All of the politicians were off so there wasn't much going on there. Still cool to see the rotunda. Also frequented the Washington memorial and the white house (free viewing from the road), both cool. Went to Georgetown that afternoon/evening to shop and see Up in the Air. Awesome movie IMO.

Today, slept pretty late and spent some time in the gym. Made it to the US Postal Museum, which was cool, and then to Union Station; for a train station, it was pretty cool. We then went to the National Archives which had a line a block down the street to get into the building. Didn't really know what was going on, but it was too cold to stick around to find out. But that really didn't seem to deter us much since we then got off at the Smithsonian metro station and walked all the way down to the Lincoln memorial, which is actually just a mile, but when your walking against chilling wind...it's soooo cold. Worth it? Yes.

That's all for now.
