The Washington D.C. Monuments

Wednesday, January 9, 2013
We’ve been planning this trip for months and I can’t believe we finally made it. Even though the purpose of our visit is to renew my Philippines passport. Yeah we drove for almost 8 hours just to go to the Philippine Embassy in DC. I must say just like other State this small city of District of Columbia needs more than a day to explore the whole tourist attraction. Unfortunately we don’t have that much time right now as we need to drive to Buffalo, NY. However here we are and we’ll make the most of it.

District of Columbia is a small city between Maryland and Virginia State. This is the capital of United States. It’s a dream come true to finally see the White House I’m sure everyone can relate to me (he he). There so much history in this place and seeing the Memorials make me feels sad to those who died to serve the country. 

I just want to end this post; of my favorite lines at the song “God Bless the USA”  and it goes:  ♬♩ And I gladly stand up, next to you and defend her still today. ‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land, God bless the USA. ♫♪

    By the way, thanks for the comment and well wishes you left in my blog. Yeah, medyo naging busy ako lately, and na-sidetrack sa ibang mga bagay, kaya nag-hiatus for a while sa blogging ;) Heto ngayon trying to make a comeback :)
