Washington Day 2

We headed out early to avoid the heat. We were out the door at 8.30am which was a record for us but boy there was no escaping the heat. It was very hot and humid even then. About 94 Fahrenheit which is about 35 Celsius and the humidity was very high. You just had to stand outside to start sweating ! It is hard to be a tourist in this heat as it just drains all your energy, anyway we battled on. We headed off to Arlington National Cemetery to visit some historical sites including JFK’s grave and learn some more American history. In the afternoon we headed to one of the Smithsonian Institutes – the National Air and Space Museum which was fantastic. Lots of hands on exhibits and displays, including the actual command module from the Apollo 11 moon landing !!
