After the QE2 crossing from Southampton to New
York on the QE2, we caught the train from Penn Station to Washington Union
Station on the very fast Acela Express.
We stayed in the very beautiful Fairmont Hotel in
a great suite and spent 5 nights enjoying Washington. We had worried that
we would not find it very exciting. In the end we had a great time. There
are amazing museums and very pretty buildings. One of the highlights was
the crazy bus tour we took that goes all round the city. Well worth it!
