After becoming one with nature, it was time to socialize with the people in the city again.
We started in Washington DC, the capital city of the USA.
We visited a lot of monuments, all over the city.
And of course we could not leave Washington DC, without visiting the White house. And before we knew it, we saw Michelle Obama passing by.
There was another surprise waiting for us.
We got free tickets to visit the backyards of the White house.
Here we had a really close look at the house. It was surprisingly small and very white.
It was a day full of unexpected moments.
In Washington DC we learned a lot about the history of the United States. There is a well known sentence: E Pluribus Unum; out of many, one.
And the Big Apple, our next stop is for sure one out of many.
It was our last minute decision to come to the city that never sleeps.
There are so many things to do and we had just two days ahead of us.
The days were filled with all the things we wanted to see and do.
We took the ferry to Staten Island, to see the Statue Of Liberty. Walking from financial disrict to Soho and the way back to Fifth Avenue. We had bubble tea in China town and before we knew it we decided to have a new haircut there as well.
In Brooklyn we had a good sushi lunch. Grand central station and Rockafeller Center were also on our “to do list”.
When the sun was under, we walked over the Manhattan Bridge, to see the skyline of New York by night. And took the subway to The Times Square for a really good New York Style cheesecake.
Now we just have a few hours left and then it is already time to leave this amazing city.
