Went to Washington DC, saw the following:

  • Fort McHentry
  • Annapolis
  • Holocaust Memorial Museum (best damn museum I've ever been to)
  • Various monuments (Roosevelt was my favorite)
  • Senate building (the security people there are fools)
  • Air & Space Museum (only a few exhibits)
  • Mount Vernon
  • Arlington National Cemetary
  • American History Museum (only one exhibit)

    • You aren't allowed to take pictures of the Senate or House of Representatives or the surrounding hallways. This is a load of crap, anybody could take a standard camcorder and remove or obscure the recording LED and walk around the place recording everything. Same with a digital camera with the flash turned off, the advantage being that it is silent. If a spy really wanted to it would be trivial for them to create a detailed map of the area.

      My sister's got to perform the wreath-laying at George Washington's crypt. Really cool place he had there, I really liked the idea of the sunken walls.

      The Holocaust Memorial Musuem is a very very good museum. I recommend it to anyone. The best part of it is all the artifacts they have. The atrium is of the building gave me a feeling of being completely and totally wrong. I don't know how to describe it exactly, but oppressive and confinging barely scratch the surface.
