Walking the Mall: Washington Monument to Lincoln Memorial

via the World War II Memorial.

Together with all the Museums (which, as most of the Museums in Washington D.C., are open to the public free of charge) situated along both sides, this is a giant monument dedicated to government, history, art and culture. One may well spend an entire trip to D.C., just walking up and down the Mall. 

And then, there is also that House.

Philadelphia – The Steps, The Men, The Tune

How many times I heard the tune, I couldn’t possibly tell – I lost count halfway to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It had been in my head all along and seemingly everyone – myself included – got in synch as soon as The Steps appeared on the far end of the long stretch between Logan Square and The Oval.

Everyone, except Washington that is, seeing how he faces away, his back turned to the steps.

The rest of the world goes the Rocky wayLike this Donut Man
Or this Reenactor Or the Man himself

And, finally, The Tune:
