Wednesday we had planned to do all the touristy stuff in DC. We headed into the city after a late breakfast, and started out near the Capitol building.
We then milled around the national mall, weaving in a few museums and food stands.
After a couple of hours of walking in the heat, my parents decided to hop on a tour bus to see the rest of the city, while I continued to wander the sites on my own.
I then headed to the National Portrait Museum, where I was meeting a friend for dinner. I walked around the museum a bit before meeting up with my friend, but I will save that for another post.
