Pinoytransplant in Washington D.C.

No, I did not run for congress or the senate. I just toured and visited Washington D.C. with my family.

While in DC, we toured the Capitol building and even sat at the House of Representatives. Of course the House was not in session, or else I could have helped them draft a bill pardoning all pinoy TNT.

one hot seat!

However, we were able to sit in the Supreme Court hall during a live deliberation of a case. Too bad they did not ask for my opinion.

We also visited the White House and were able to walk into the Blue Room where guests and foreign dignitaries are received. Well, I’m foreign alright, but I don’t know about being dignitary. (Unfortunately no cell phones or cameras allowed inside, or I could have called my mother while I’m inside the White House.)

As a nerd, I have to go to the library. The Library of Congress, that is.

We also visited the museums………

National Air and Space Museum

Hope Diamond (in National Museum of American History)

National Museum of American History

Stradivarius String Quartet (American Art Museum)

And the monuments.

Thomas Jefferson Memorial

Statues at FDR Memorial (One is real. Can you tell?)

One of the falls at FDR Memorial

Korean War Memorial

Vietnam War Memorial

Lincoln Memorial

World War II Memorial

I'm checking how strong is the foundation of freedom here. (Taken at Lincoln Memorial, at the distance is the Washington Monument)

It was an enlightening trip. Maybe I’ll visit Washington DC again someday…….. when I run for President.

I have a dream. Or keep on dreaming?
