Then November happened and darkness descended on the earth...
My mom was firm though (even when I dangled the New York carrot instead); she wanted to see the nation's capital regardless, so we went and I'm glad we did!
this wonderful airbnb which was within walking distance of restaurants, pubs, a bar, and a yoga studio, all of which I visited! A quick Uber ride and we were at the National Mall.
FDR Memorial was fabulous! It was hard to not be deeply moved by it.
we hear from our nation's leader today.
The Korean War Memorial, however, was my favorite. Again, it was hard not to be moved by it. As you walked through the memorial you had the feeling you were there, in battle, with those soldiers.
Each level up from there and to the ground floor, takes you through the civil rights movements and finally the Obama Presidency.
Aside from our bus tour, food and Uber trips, we spent very little money as the monuments and the museums were all free!
