The White House Washington DC

No trip to Washington DC is complete without a visit to the White House. If you are lucky enough to get an inside tour that would be first prize. I think you would have to book ahead up to the month’s in advance. We were not so lucky but still enjoyed the view from the outside.

Union Station Washington DC

Union Station in Washington DC is a tourist destination on its own. Plenty of food outlets, shopping and off course the metro and trains.
In the photo above you can see a row of soldier statues. When these were first erected shortly after the building was built they never had shields as you can see today. Well the complaints came in fast and furious and the statues were taken down and returned a few years later with shields.

St Augustine Flagler College

The Flagler College we see today was in fact the Ponce de Leon Hotel built by Henry Flagler. An outstanding building with all the modern essentials at the time like running water and electricity. In fact the hotel had electricity before the White House. Henry Flagler actually got Thomas Edison to bring electricity to the hotel. Funny thing was that he had to employ staff to switch the lights on and off for his guests who were afraid on getting electrocuted.

So elaborate was the hotel he got Louis Tiffany to do … Continue reading
