Mitch *finally* got his hair cut here, on the right. Then had a burrito on the left.

After the Air & Space museum, we went to dinner at a Rainforest Café. This monkey was near our table. I found the restaurant to be one large gimmick.

On Friday, we took the DC Metro (subway) to the Mall area. We exited at the Navy Memorial.

We noticed a construction worker lounging outside a fancy building. Thought it was a funny shot.

Statue at the National Archives. I've always liked this quote.

National Archives building.

The original Declaration of Independence. It's barely readable, like it sat in someone's back pocket during the Revolutionary War. Impressive to see in person.

The Constitution.

More of the Constitution. It was great to see in person, and even read a bit of it. I'm a big fan of the Constitution. If you haven't read through it lately you should; amazing how much debate of current events comes right back here (and to the Bill of Rights).

Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution. Again, a good read. Freedom of religion, the press, the "fifth amendment" - it's all right here.

Mitch in front of the Constitution. With lots of schoolkids, most of which are too young to appreciate that this is anything more than an old piece of paper.

This was funny - in the elevator door of the National Archives is engraved the Declaration of Independence.

Nice shot of the Capitol dome as we walked from the National Archives towards the Supreme Court.

Another great place, the Supreme Court of the United States.

What's a visit to Washington without seeing a protest? This small group is protesting the war in Iraq and treatment of prisoners.
