We will be leaving our hotel in the morning to fly / drive to Wichita for the next leg of our trip but I felt compelled to let you know what a great time we have had in Washington. The people are so polite, from drivers slowing to let us cross the road to riders on the metro letting passengers off and not trying to push on, to people helping with directions etc. The city is clean and felt safe - the only time we felt.a little uneasy, it turned out that the guy wanted to wish us a happy Labor Day!
We could do with a new set of feet tho!
I think today's tour of the US Capitol Building and Library of Congress was the highlight, closely followed by yesterday's visit to Ford's Theater but every day has been remarkable.
I will try to do a trip report when I get home to my laptop, rather than struggle to type one on my iPad.
Thanks to everyone who answered my questions prior to our trip.
