Aug,5

Saturday (forth day in Meryland)

We visited many memorials.

At the morning, we met with mentors at the lobby and went to the Metro station.

About 30 minutes, we arrived at Washington D.C

First of all, we visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial where there is a memorial which is carved names of victims who died at the war.

Second, we went to the Lincoln Memorial. There is a big monument of Lincoln. All of us took pictures and took rest.

The Korean Veterans Memorial was impressive for me.

The Old Post Office Pavilion where we visited for lunch is very big and broad. I ate a chicken salad at the Old Post Office Pavilion.

In the evening, we visited the World War II Memorial and the Washington Monument.

Hi Nobu, in English we consider anything between noon and 6 pm to be afternoon, and anything between 6 pm and bedtime to be evening. :-)

Today, create a new post to write about our visit to the Washington Post and the area around Lafayette Square.

Hi Nobu!

I think it's really interesting that you seemed to be more impressed by the Korean War Veteran Memorial rather than the Lincoln Memorial.

I guess it might be because even though the Lincoln Memorial is impressive because it's sheer size, maybe the Korean Memorial might be more impressive because of the touching sight of the soldiers marching across the battlefield?
