Yesterday, I arrived at home - back to Germany and kind of back to boredom.
I had a nice Eastcoast trip and I'd like to give you some impressions of the cities I visited and a last post about my shopping haul.
Let's start with my first city: Washington. I've neither been there before nor looked up the internet how it's like. I wanted to be surprised. Well, let's start with the fact that this city is very cultural. There are a lot of museums - which are by the way for free - and political buildings. In addition to that there's no skyline. Contrariwise, it seems like all the buildings have the same style, height and as well the same look. But that does not mean that it's not worth to be seen. On contrary, the city is fabulous. However, I was a bit irritated by recognizing that the White House is placed in the middle of town (I thought it might be outside of the city on a big landscape). Obama seems to be the neighbor of the citizens.
Furthermore, if you look forward to shop in D.C. you have to visit Georgetown because you'll find barley shops next to the Capitol or FBI. By visiting Georgetown you'll pleased with lots of labels and pretty restaurants. I loved it there.
To put it in a nutshell, Washington is worth seeing though it's very different from the cities I've visited before.
But let's make pictures speak...
