I hired a car & left Boston, & made my way to DC. On the way I stopped for the night at New Haven, and met with a friend that I had made in Boston, who lived nearby. New Haven is the home of Yale University, & I was told that the town was built around the university.
Apparently there are 2 pizza restaurants there which are meant to have the best pizza in the states. We ate at one of them & it was pretty damn good!
Apparently one of the first burger joints to open in the country
The heavens were opening on the way to DC
I met up with my mate Warwick's girlfriend, Lauren & one of her friends from back home. We checked out a few places together and ate some good old hearty American food.
DC was quite spectacular. Plenty of museums, good food, a lot of monuments & memorials dedicated to the great leaders & advocates of the country, & of course the white house & congress.
Nice view of DC
The famous 'Hope Diamond' - apparently worth about $250 million.
The White House
The Washington Monument
Martin Luther King
