Finally in Washington. My favorite place out of all the cities we visited!! The weather was perfect.. the architecture was impeccable.. every single thing there seemed to be in their right spot. It was so peaceful. It didnt have as much people as in New York. It was calm and quiet. Definitely my cup of tea.
So on me is the parka I got from Century 21 for like what, 80-90% off? The original price on this was $295 and I got it for only $60. Cool huh! This was supposedly the jacket that I was going to buy for the extremely cold weather in New York. Unfortunately, I bought it on our last day in NY so it didnt serve its purpose much. It's been quite handy for the Philippine weather these days though. Been raining non-stop and I've been running to it for water-proof-lazy-outfit-days. Just this parka and some boots and I'm good to go!
Really loved Washington. We basically went around The Mall which includes monuments such as the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, The Capitol, The Smithsonian Museums (which featured the HOPE diamond --the biggest diamond in the world-- among other things), and of course, The White House. Although there arent much places to visit, (it can be toured in just a day or two) I still love it simply for its ambiance. I dont know, I guess I'm not really drawn to the upbeat cities and the like. Although I love a little party once in a while, I'm still a laid back type of person (which is why LA will alwaaaaaayyss be my favorite!). This post will be the last from the bunch since I barely wore anything nice in Orlando anyway. The theme parks were great though! Maybe one day when I'm bored and I have nothing more to post I will do an update on our Orlando trip but for now, I shall leave you with this. Till then!
