We went to Mount Vernon - the home of George Washington.
We visited a couple of the museum then walked the monuments and memorials.
The next morning we spent time at Arlington Cemetery. We saw the house, the Tomb of the Unknowns, watched the changing of the guard, and wandered the cemetery a bit. There was a funeral going on. It was very touching.
The next thing we did was head to the Old Post Office Pavilion. You can't go up in the Washington Monument anymore. Which makes me glad I did when I was young. So we went to the Old Post Office. You can go up to the 12th floor and look out from the bell tower. It was cool.
It was a good trip.
I was home for two days before I headed back to China, where I had a great two weeks with a routine and a few adventures before I was off for another grand adventure. I'll start blogging about that tomorrow. It's a long one with lots of fun and family.
