    Everyone should visit Washington DC. Museums, monuments explain the Nation's history. No one knows it all but this is an excellent place to dust off your high school/college US history classes.

    Really enjoyed this very interesting tour of the building. I would highly recommend it. Got a guided tour and we were able to go into the house too.

    With an evening flight home I had a free day so caught the Metro to Foggy Bottom and strolled down to the river. It was Sunday afternoon so quite busy with locals relaxing and enjoying the many bars and restaurants. It is a lovely place to sit and watch the boats and planes going by, or to simply walk along the boardwalk up and down the river. It was then just a short stroll back up to the road to catch a bus back to downtown.

    Tenleytown, is a village formerly outside Washington DC and now in NW Washington. The American University is situated there but Tenleytown itself has a character of its own. A wander around the streets is worthwhile, perhaps following the Tenleytown Trail (signboards all over the place) and seeing some of the early buildings and Fort Reno, a civil war fort. Plenty of little places to stop and eat and some interesting shopping.
