Alexandria, Virginia

Saturday, our first day in DC, was spent taking part in a guided tour by the woman who switched apartments with us. The drove us by some local shopping (like Target and Safeway) then to the National Mall (Capital monument and Congress, etc.), and a few other landmarks she felt would be helpful.

Sunday we drove to Alexandria Virginia. It is only about 10km from our place in Arlington. This was part of DC until ~1846. At its heart is an old town. The highlight is the old torpedo factory, now an art gallery.

It was about 15C (60F) our first day here which made us excited. Now it is around 0C (32F) again. Looks like it will be a while before it improves again.

Hey OO, sounds like another great start to a new adventure! What a awesome apartment switch! wow.

I'm hoping at some point that you'll post a summary of what's different vs similar between the two national capitals!

take care, kmag.
