In an attempt to get all of our holiday photos online, I've come to a coffeeshop down Finchley Road. It's called Tiki. Isn't bad, they do try to make it just coffee related, but it still doesn't have that cozy feel I'm after.
I picked up all of our film pictures today and then left the CDs at home, so those will have to go up later. Do we really have that many pictures? Yes, yes we do. We went to a lot of places you know!
I thought I could put up a few pictures every now and then, but I don't plan to do them in any order. Let's just call this trip highlights.
And this is one of my favorites. While DC wasn't the beautiful city I imagined it to be, the Lincoln Memorial definately lived up to my expectations. It's huge and calm and quiet (despite the kiddies running around). I wish we had had the chance to see it at night, but our time was limited and the weather was hot and I'm sure we were crabby. Our mini tourguide, Lindsey, mentioned a little American Sign Language history, though I'm sorry to say i can't remember the whole story. What I do remember is that it is said that either the builder or the designer of the memorial was deaf and so, in order to recognize the Deaf community, Lincoln is signing the letters A and L.
