Fun in Washington
Submitted by bugsly on Thursday, January 12, 2006 - 19:21 Core | Subway | Washington, DC

Today we got a very special tour from William, an intern, of the Senate Building and Capitol Building, our guide was great even though it was his first tour. We saw lots of statues and chandeliers; we also got to ride on the underground subway from the Senate Building to the Capitol Building. Once we reached the Capitol we got to see the enormous dome that, evidently, can hold the Lady Liberty with room to spare! I thought that the paintings and murals in there were very extravagant and marvellous, along with some of the sculptures.

We then split up, Michael and my Dad going to the Air and Space Museum, and my Mom and I to the National Cathedral. The National Cathedral was very big, in fact from the entrance, to the very tip of the Cathedral was about one tenth of a mile! The whole inside of the Cathedral is in the shape of a cross, although they promote it as a worship space for any faith, there are also hundreds of stained glass windows. The largest stained glass window has more than 10,000 individual pieces of glass in it, when you look from afar you can see that the pictures inside it depict the creation of the earth. I have to say that the Cathedral was very fun to see and learn about, also to learn about its construction for more than 100 years.

Finally, my Mom and I headed down to the Air and Space Museum, where we met up with my brother and my Dad and we all headed back to the Hotel for an hour or so. After our little break we went to the Lincoln Memorial at night and saw it even though the statue of President Lincoln was being restored and had scaffoldings all around it. We also saw the Reflecting Ponds in front of the Washington Memorial. I'm definitely looking forward to tomorrow for another day of Washington fun.
