Rise and shine! (Is it 6:00 a.m.? My body is telling me it's 4:00 a.m.) We have an important day ahead of us. This morning we finish visiting most of the memorials with Viet Nam, Lincoln, and Korean. We'll go to the Newseum after that, followed by lunch. From there the bus picks us up and takes to the Capitol for a film and a tour. We go to Arlington National Cemetery next for the "Changing of the Guard" and to partake in the "Wreath Laying Ceremony" at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Our fabulous bus driver, Cheryl, will then take us to the Kennedy Center for the hilarious, interactive theatre show, Shear Madness, We'll eat dinner at the Kennedy Center after the show. We end the day with a visit to the Marine Corps Memorial - Iwo Jima, and arrive back at the hotel around 9:00 p.m.
Phew! Here we go!
