    USA Tour - Washington/Virginia

    November 23 in the United States

    First full day in Washington today so decided to go out and check the landmarks out. DC is bigger than what I thought... started off at the Whitehouse, completely underwhelming, couldn’t get anywhere near it really and it’s not even That big. Then I moved onto the Washington monument but that was closed for repairs. Ended up by the WW2 memorial which was actually pretty good, then I walked down to the Lincoln memorial which as memorials go is pretty fucking good. A lot bigger than what I expected even though it looked big in planet of the apes and team America. Also managed to see the Vietnam war memorial, the Korean War memorial, Martin Luther King JR memorial, Franklin Roosevelt Memorial, DC War Memorial, Thomas Jefferson Memorial, The Pentagon (couldn’t get that close to it though unfortunately - TEAM SNOWDEN) Arlington Cemetery, JF Kennedy gravesite, The Tomb of the forgotten soldier and then my favourite... the US Marine Corps memorial. It was a looooong day and many many miles where walked. But it was a great day that I really enjoyed, I think it helped that it was relatively quiet as people where still celebrating thanksgiving. Picked up a McDonald’s on the way back cause that’s a local thing to do...Read more

    Arlington National Cemetery

    May 27, 2017 in the United States

    Da am Montag Memorial Day ist, haben wir heute kurzfristig beschlossen, uns dem Zeremoniell der Amis mal anzuschließen und uns mit auf den Nationalfriedhof in Arlington zu begeben, den zweitgrößten Friedhof der USA. Dort fanden rund 400.000 Armeeangehörige sowie hochrangige Politiker und ein paar Promis ihre letzte Ruhe. Unter anderem auch John F. Kennedy, an dessen Grab eine mordsmäßig große Menschenmasse vorbeizog. Auch bei der Wachablösung am Grab der unbekannten Soldaten waren zig Dutzende Leute anwesend. Mit Kranzniederlegung und allem patriotischen Bimborium. Die machen schon einen riesen Kult hier zum Memorial Day. Da werden von Freiwilligen vor jeden einzelnen der 400.000 Grabsteine auch kleine Fahnen gesteckt; macht bei 139 solcher Friedhöfe landesweit schon was aus. Die Fähnchen-Industrie scheint zu boomen.Read more

    Arlington National Cemetary

    April 25, 2016 in the United States

    Visited the Arlington National Cemetary, it was cool to see how Americans treat their military it seems a much bigger thing here than in the UK.

    Saw JFK burial site and eternal flame (the only picture I took there on my phone apparently).

    Watched an over the top never ending changing of the guard where the one guy was acting and looked a bit like Agent Smith from the Matrix. Not like Americans to go over the top...Read more
