We toured downtown Washington,
DC for the whole day. The private bus made
getting around a lot easier.
The first stop was the Lincoln Memorial. On the left is the picture we took this
time. On the right is the same spot in 1970, exactly 40 years ago. You may want
to click on the picture for more details.
Then we move on to the Vietnam Memorial.
A short stroll in the Mall
WWI and WWII Memorials
Cherry Blossom Parade and Japanese Festival
East wing of the National Art Gallery designed by I. M.
Then through the connecting tunnel to the west wing.
We were so fortunate to have Tony's sister Tan Jia Sang
explain to us the technical background of some of the exhibits. I have been to
this museum many times but have never learned so much.
Finally the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
Naturally, a perfect day must end with a Chinese dinner
