After lunch at Philadelphia, we drove straight to Washington DC and ran in the same kind of mad traffic again due to political rallies. Since we were late we were worried if the guide would wait for us. Thankfully, however, when our Tour Manager called him, being a professional he understood and agreed to wait for us.
By the time we rolled in, dark thick clouds were in the sky and before our bus could stop it started to drizzle. That however did not stop us from getting down and enjoying the beautiful city of DC in an equally awesome weather.
Washington, D.C was formally called the District of Columbia and is the capital of United States. It is located along the Potomac River. The federal district is formed out of land donated by 2 states, Maryland and Virginia. It was named in the memory of George Washington. It is not only home to White House but many other interesting and important landmarks, foreign embassies and museums.
Next morning, we went for the Capitol Tour and some of the pictures, I took there are appended.
We were short of time so only saw two museums and then after lunch, left the town for Harrisburg.
