It has been a great experience in my life. It is the first time to be in Washington DC as a big city in the US. Like other Asian guys, I have experienced the jetlag while walking at midnight from Vietnam time. The time zone difference is of 12 hours between Vietnam and the US. It makes me feel sleepy so bad, but much more interesting to set foot on new land and explore new things here.
Luckily, I have joined with other fellows to take a short journey to go around the city, such as the US Capitol, White House, Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, Lincoln Memorial, National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, National World War II Memorial, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. I am highly appreciated by urban planning design, especially in a small area of the big city, but tourists can walk around to see many things-to-go in DC. The following are some photos that I took during the trip.
