Well by the time we got to Washington after 3 months of travelling we were a little travelled out and looking forward to settling down in London. This did make Charlie and Katherine a little lazy but Leon managed to get us out at least a couple of times and did the rest by himself - bless him.
In our defence it was scorching hot and really busy - we didn't realise the weekend we decided to come to Washinton it was Memorial day weekend so the museums were packed with queues just to get in the door. We even saw some of the infamous vietnam veteran bikies which apparently storm washington every year for memorial day.
Whilst visiting the Whitehouse Charlie and Katherine even managed to get a peek at the president! exciting stuff! Ok well he was in a tinted 4WD, among another 6 such tinted 4WDs... but we're definately sure he was in one of them.
Here is where he lives.
If you're ever in Washinton - a great night out is to be had in Dupont Circle where we grew to love to hate the game - Shuffleboard... I think possibly we ended up worse than we started but fun was had by all, and greg - english lad (who i swear to god is Dwayne's long lost twin).
Now that we've left the good old US of A, one thing we are missing are Junior Mints! those loveable deadly mints Kramer dropped in some guys stomach during an operation viewing in Seinfeld.
And that concludes our American continent adventures - it was tacky and loud and full of way too much pizza - and dodgy stomach bugs (thank-you dodgy mexico).
