Washington D.C., USA

The Washington Monument

Week two saw a change of scene with us heading to the political seat of the US, Washington D.C. We stayed in a super fancy hotel in the embassy area of Dupont Circle (thanks lastminute.com). Ordering room service on the first night we spent the next few days walking around Washington in the heat checking out all the monuments. And the free museums! The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History was all I dreamed it to be. The rocks… oh the rocks.

Room service!!!
