My vacation

Now that I am done with cribbing, let us move on to happier things. This past winter break was one of the most pleasant vacations I have ever had. Loads of travelling, loads of good food, loads of shopping, loads of movies, loads of get-togethers. In fact the only thing missing in that list is probably 'loads of sleeping' but then one can't get loads of everything and still get the sleep one wants... ;-). I wonder why my sis finds this so hard to understand.. grr.

Some pictures follow..


I took this picture of Downtown Washington DC standing right in the middle of the road after the pedestrian signal had changed. Luckily, I wasn't arrested.. I was honked at a couple of times though..



The Capitol Building



The White House was the least impressive of all the architecture in DC. I wasn't even tempted to take a peek inside though they were allowing visitors on the day we were there.



The Lincoln Memorial



The Washington Monument


Both the Lincoln Memorial and the Washinton monument were breathtakingly beautiful.

I LOVE that pic you took in the middle of the road. What a gr8 idea. Who cares about the honkers? You're never going to meet them ever! I think I might try that sometime too! :D
