So last night boyfie and I decided to take a drive from Alexandria to DC for a midnight strolling. Well, it was already past midnight and it was freezing cold outside. Felt like my whole face was injected with botox (as if i’ve tried it). Haha!
So yeah, we strolled along a few monuments like the Washington Monument, World War II Memorial and drove by the US Capitol as well. I was in awe! So surreal… I thought I’d only be able see it in the movies and never thought I’d witness its beauty in person.
The Washington Monument or also known as “The Big Pencil” was still under repair due to an earthquake that occurred in August 2011. I do hope it opens before I fly back to the Philippines. Hehe!
The lights on each pillar creates an amazing water reflection.
Me all wrapped up! Haha!
See what I see? The pillars represents the unity of the United States and its territories at the time of the World War II. Each pillar represents each one of the states, the District of Columbia and the U.S Territories.
U.S Capitol. Need I say more? It was breathtaking! I had to let boyfie drive closer to it so I could get a better look at the beautiful architecture. Took a few snapshots when we got there but I just had to show you guys this one shot ‘cuz of the beautiful lights. =)
Hope you enjoyed this post guys! Have a great week! =)
