We were going to spend two days in this beautiful city, but as I have mentioned before, the heat was just a little hot for us. So we decided that we would leave early the next day, before the rush hour and make our way to a cooler climate. But I did manage to get some photos, not that great, as they were from the car window, but enough to show a a little of how green this city is. I also wanted to capture how different simple things are than at home, like stop and road signs. I love the idea that you are shown how much longer you get to cross the road and wow they are wide roads. But I was a bit sad that Capitol Dome was under going some restoration work, I should re phase that….. I am really please that they are looking after this wonderful building, but I would have loved to have taken some photos minus the scaffolding, but then how often is there scaffolding on the dome…… We took a walk in the evening to have a look at the Dome, when we thought it would be cooler, it was a little cooler but not much, but we did make it and had a nice surprise …… More to follow.
