This time last year I was sent down to Baltimore Maryland and then with extra time on my hands I went to Washington DC to do some site seeing. Even as I left Canada it was warmer than usual but when I landed down there it was beautiful weather. In Washington I remember to me it felt like spring, for a Canadian on such sunny beautiful days I had to carry my coat most of the time. Baltimore had some nice sites (and delicious crab cakes which I never had before) but Washington was beautiful with the architecture of the buildings, plus it was kind of interesting to walk
around the city I often saw filmed in movies and TV shows. I left my map back at the hotel slowing me down a little in finding places I wanted to see, and being pressed for time I was unfortunately not able to see the White House. I played the lost little Canadian card and people were really helpful and friendly once they realized that I was Canadian and not going to mug them. If anyone lives in these cities I am just wondering do they have snow there now? I saw the temperatures are no where near the degrees they were this time last year. It was so beautiful and it gave me that little break that we Canucks need to help get us through the winter.
A sight I often see on TV and now I was able to take my own picture, you can see the haze of the day, or maybe that was smog! No just kidding it was a nice day the air smelled fresh. I think by clicking on the pictures, it will make them larger, that is if it works correctly.
One of my favorite pictures is of the people skating while you can see green grass growing in the background. I guess the weather was not cooperating with their holiday plans. I wish that I was able to spend at least one more day there and maybe some day I will go back to continue where I left off.
I used to see this building all the time on an old TV show but I could not remember what show. I came closer to hear what the cops were talking about, it was something funny like what was the best place to go for breakfast, very top secret of course.
I hope most Americans get to some day see their Capitol city at least once in their lives, I think it is worth the trip. As for our Capitol city I live in it so I see ours every day.
