Can't do DC without doing the Mall... We walked from the National Gallery to the Washington Monument. The threat of rain prevented us from going all the way to the Lincoln Memorial.. A stirring site, and a must see

I have to go back! Everything was great and I saw that new exhibits are soon to come. I still have so much more to see so I cant wait for my return trip.

We were there during the USA Africa Summit, and the mall was very crowded, even at night. It is still something else in its magnitude, as you turn from the Washington Monument to Lincoln's, and then to the White House in the distance.

It was awesome to be here, but I wasn't prepared for the distance. I made it from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument. thank goodness for the amazing pedicab driver.
