CAPITAL JOURNEY – WASHINGTON DC – THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT .

FB_IMG_1501512167808As  you  leave  your  hostel  and  walk  towards  the  Washington  Monument ,  you  notice  something  about  the  city .

Not  only  are  people  walking   , they  jog  and  ride  their  bikes  here .

A  lot .

Now  you  can  see  why  this  city  is  considered  to  be  one  of  the  ”  fittest  cities  ”  in  the  country .

People  take  their  exercising  very  seriously .

You  might  even  see your  senator  or  congresswoman  or  congressman  out  running .

Or  maybe  not .

You  have ,  however ,  lost  count  of  how  many  helicopters  you’ve  seen  or heard  since  you’ve  been  here .

It’s  7  am  and  you  are  trying  to  beat  the  crowds  to  the  Washington  Monument .

Hardly  any  other  tourists  are  here  and  it’s  wonderful .

No  crowds  to  deal  with .

It’s  the  first  monument  you  see  as  you  enter  the  National  Mall .

You  can’t  go anywhere  on  the  National  Mall  or  in  the  city  without  seeing  it .

You  would  like  to  go  inside ,  but  it’s  a  long  walk  from  here  to  the  next  destination  on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Washington  DC .

The  National  World  War  2  Memorial .
