The amount of historical sites that you can visit in Washington D.C., the capital of the United States, deserve a longer stay than the speedy 1-day visits that are usually made from New York.

Our visit to Washington took place at the same time than the Memorial Day weekend, when the United States pay tribute to the heroes who protected the nation during the different war conflicts that they have been part of.

Strolling along the National Mall, where the Memorials are located, as well as a great number of excellent museums (the vast majority of them offering free entries!) arouse a whole mix of emotions in me.

Washington is a clean and neat city, and I really enjoyed discovering it on foot, walking along its cafes and restaurants in Georgetown and U-Street, coming across so many places I had already seen in lots of famous films and meeting its friendly and relaxed inhabitants.

You can tell that the Washingtonians like to enjoy life, whether attending a baseball game with their family or friends, sailing the Potomac River, enjoying the parades with thousands and thousands of Harley Davidson, dining in fine restaurants or attending some of the many music festivals that take place in the city.

I was impressed by the Capitol, the National Archives, the Lincoln Memorial… And I enjoyed meeting the security officials around the White House, who kindly allowed us to take pictures while they were efficiently doing their job at the same time.

Washington is a beautiful and entertaining city, excellently communicated with Barcelona and Madrid thanks to a direct flight, and I enjoyed my stay there very very much!
