Formally known as Washington, District of Columbia, this historic city is also the capital of the United States. It is not part of any US state, therefore directly overseen by the Federal Government. With this heavy fact in mind, Miss Iggy just can't help but exclaim "IKR"--i know, right. D.C. is roughly 4 hours away from New Jersey (factor in a Chick-fil-A stop in Maryland), so imagine Wander Iggy's initial reaction when told that we're driving this very long to go to 'The Mall'.
The National Mall of course is not your regular mall. It's a very large open area in the centre of the city. Walking around, at one end is the US Capitol. (above)
In the middle is
this phallic symbol the Washington Monument.
And in the other end is Lincoln Memorial, where Miss Iggy paid a visit to her good friend Abe.
Reminiscent of 'Night at the Museum 2', we visited some of the museums.
Among them is a Miss Iggy favourite--the Air and Space Museum.
'Is this outta here or what?'
Hamming it up with Panelomo at the Smithsonian
Our last stop is at the White House. Miss Iggy had to make a courtesy call, of course.
