Capital of USA - Washington D.C.

While staying in New York we decided to see the capital of America as well. How could we miss it when it was only 4 hours away from us.

Our second day in America and here we are, in a beautiful Washington D.C. - capital of the United States.

Washington-2.jpg

It was a dreamy sunny day. And the city itself is so much different than New York. Much cleaner, streets are larger and all buildings are relatively low.

International Trade Center on the background.

Beautiful streets of Washington.

Washington-7.jpg

Mostly stone and brick buildings.

You can see the United States Capitol Complex shining at the end of the street.

And here is the famous Washington Monument.

Washington-31.jpg

Many airplanes landing right in front of it. I suppose somewhere near by must be an airport.

The Washington Monument is an obelisk on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., built to commemorate the first U.S. president, General George Washington.

It is located in the center of the Washington. To the left of it can be seen the White House with president Obama in it. Probably. :)

Washington-14.jpg

In front of it is the Capitol Complex and to the opposite side is Lincoln Memorial which unfortunately we totally forgot about. Shame on us.

Washington-13.jpg

We decided to have a brake and take some photos.

Capitol Complex looks gorgeous. Maybe this is the reason we forgot about Lincoln Memorial since we wanted to have a closer look at the Capitol.

Hello America.

Washington-19.jpg

The sun was really hot, so we decided to have a little shower right away :)

Washington-24.jpg

It was about 34C hot that day. We even got sunburn whilst walking.

Washington-21.jpg

A small little house right in the center of the city. Looks interesting. We were about to see very similar house in Dallas a week later.

Washington-22.jpg

Before going to the Capitol we decided to see the White House.

Washington-23.jpg

It's the closest you can get to it. To be honest nothing special about it. It's not that big, can't be accessed and doesn't leave much impression.

Washington-25.jpg

Next stop - the Capitol.

Washington-26.jpg

It was getting hotter and hotter so we weren't saving water since you can buy it on every corner or just drink from special places for free as it is shown on one of my previous photos.

Taking a break for photos.

Washington-29.jpg

So here we are.

Washington-30.jpg

It is the meeting place of the United States Congress.

Washington-33.jpg

In front of it is a large fountain. Strangely we didn't find that many tourists as we were expecting.

Washington-34.jpg

This is a view from the Capitol Complex to the Washington Monument.

Washington-35.jpg

Well, this is probably the closest you can get to the Capitol.

Washington-36.jpg

American explorers. :)

Washington-37.jpg

This is the result of a long long day. But we still had the whole evening.

Washington-38.jpg

In the evening you can see Washington in a totally different perspective.

Washington-40.jpg

People enjoying a nice weather.

Washington-41.jpg

It is 169.2m high and you feel really tiny standing right next to it.

Nightlife in Washington becomes even more beautiful.

Washington-46.jpg

Almost every building in the center of Washington has been enlightened.

Federal Bureau of Investigation or FBI building.

Washington-50.jpg

You can see this building in many movies like "X-Files" for example.
