I've been in DC since Wednesday evening. Amanda and Heather arrived Friday morning, and Annette arrived on Friday afternoon. We spent Friday and Saturday playing tourist.
Friday we stopped by the White House.
Went to the American History Museum.
Saturday morning I gathered my things and walked to meet the other girls at the hotel. The plan was for me to spend the night at the hotel with them on Saturday night since it was about three blocks from the start of the race. We didn't really want to be on our feet walking all day the day before our race, so we planned to take the hop on/hop off trolley around and see what we could see. We got off at the Capitol and did a quick walk through, ate lunch, got back on and rode to the Lincoln Memorial, and then headed back to where we could switch lines and go towards the National Cathedral. There was a stop that was relatively close to where we were eating dinner that night so we got off there and got a taxi to dinner.
Our trolley tour also took us down Embassy row. Which had a lot of very interesting buildings and statues (pardon the blurry photos, they were all taken from a moving vehicle).
Embassy of Iran
Embassy of Burkina Faso!!!
