Today I managed to meet up with my cousin in DC and we went to the National Zoo and saw some animals. But it was even too hot for some of them! The pandas, gorillas, and orangutans were all inside. The poor elephants were just standing in the shade spraying themselves with water. I was able to see a few animals outside before we called it quits. It was beyond packed, to the point that we had to wait on line to see the pandas. Yes, a line to see the pandas. They were quite the hot commodity. After awhile of not seeing any actual animals outside, I was done. It was way too hot to be doing this. So we switched it up and went to see the monuments. My phone was dying at this point, so I couldn't take any pics. I made sure I got a close up of the White House though!
All in all I enjoyed myself and will definitely make another trip out here. Maybe next time I'll come straight to DC and stay in the area. There were a lot more places around there I wanted to check out.
Anyone else been to DC? Any tips?
