Washington DC 3

Election Day!   As I’m writing this I still do not know who has won the election. We’ll know tonight or tomorrow morning. We voted by absentee ballot a few weeks ago.

Today we took the Metro train into DC again. I’ve lost count of how many times we have been here during our years of RVing. We’ve been to all the wonderful Smithsonian museums but still enjoy just walking around and looking at all the government buildings and everything here.

This time we went inside the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. This is a big building, much bigger than what shows in the picture here. The building hosts conferences, trade shows, cultural events and outdoor concerts.

We had our lunch in the big international food court there.

As we walked back to the Metro station we walked by the old post office building now Donald Trump’s new hotel where we saw this one protester. He was happy to pose for a picture.

Directly across the street from Trump’s hotel we could see six motorcycle police officers, two on horseback, and three police cars. Another passer-by joked with the police about them being ready for tonight. I guess you never know what could happen.

On our way home I had an opportunity to get a good shot inside the Metro Station. Definitely not rush hour!

We have had a good time, nothing weird happened other than one sketchy-looking gal asked Bernie if he had $100. He said no.
