    Government day!

    April 13, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    This morning after breakfast of oats with fruit at a local bakery we took another Uber down to the Thomas Jefferson memorial we have been impressed with Uber so far. This memorial is also another very impressive one and we were lucky to be there for the 275th celebration of Thomas Jefferson. We saw a ceremony with officials and military soldiers who looked great in their regalia and they played music 🎵 and laid flower wreaths. Next we went to the Capitol building Which is the government house and it shines brightly. In the sunlight. We waited around for dignitaries to Leave and then went downstairs to the visitor centre. Fortunately, we were able to get into a tour and had a good look around at the dime and saw the many statues representing each of the American states and several of the presidents - but not all of them.
    Then we walk down to the Union Square train station. This is another impressive building for a train station And we had lunch there at Johnny Rockets, finally an American diner👍
    Long walk home and it was actually quite hot we got sweaty😫. We enjoyed a cool drink at the Post Pub next door to our hotel and then a rest.
    This sunny evening we ventured out for our final meal at an excellent restaurant called Centrolina. Yummy pasta with ricotta mint and fava bean was the highlight and it was in a very trendy area near to all the expensive shops. Lovely balmy evening walk home. Off to Chicago tomorrow. 😉❤️
