Arrived safely in Washington yesterday evening, and had a good sleep to rid myself of most of the jet lag! Today I had a wander down Penn Avenue, took in the most obvious touristy sites of the White House and the Mall. However more interestingly, was the rolling thunder protest containing over 300,000 bikers from accross the country, asking people not to forget the POWs MIA. It was an amazing site to see so many bikes, they just kept coming and coming and coming! The shot to the left is of a large open space on the mall that was completely covered by bikes. To give some perspective on how large the parade was, they were the spectators!
