  Capitol in the rain
by Myndo

Washington -It may be Americas Capital City, but it did not leave a big impression with me.
Most of this might have to do with the weather: it was raining only once on that day.
We admired the architecture - the state buildings (like the Capitol in the picture) are built in white stone, columns everywhere.
There are some green parks spread out between the buildings and a lot (lot) of hot dog stands.

The suburbs of Washington are huge. We managed to get lost here (a real seldom thing). But we also managed to find a police officer (or rather: he found us) in only some minutes...
and they are friendly, I can tell you.

Directions: Washibgton, District of Columbia
