Nevertheless, we walked a ton and saw a lot. Of course that first day I had to use my 5-picture allotment sparingly. Here are some of the things we did...
Arlington Cemetery. We walked through it all to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (which was having a special wreath-laying ceremony by a Jordanian minister). Then we went to my grandfather's gravesite:
We happened to be there the day before his birthday. Strider and I are both proud of the legacy of sacrifice and patriotism in our family.
Then, once we got situated down by the Mall in D.C., we took a tour of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. (And watched some of the $900 MILLION being printed that day!) Very interesting.
