The Washington DC Tour Thursday, July 19,2007

Most of the memorials are free but you need tickets to get in to some of the exhibits or memorials.  Lena had tickets for the Bureau of Printing and Engraving Agency.  We saw lots of money being made.  Unfortunately, they didn’t pass out any to us for a souvenir. 

Then we went to see Ford’s Theater where Lincoln was shot and right across the street was the boarding house where Lincoln died.  The bed they had him in was very short so they laid him diagonally.

We, also, drove around and Lena pointed out buildings to us.  It seems every building is an old, important building.  They are all ornate and beautiful.


Some have even changed their names.This used to be the PO Dept. but it is now the Environmental Protection Agency.  The next three pictures are of the EPA.




At the end of the day we were dropped right at our home.
