Dublin for Thanksgiving 2012: Exploring Washington D.C


On arrival at IAD, we started off the day with a Starbucks latte before taking the shuttle to the National rental car station. National wanted $75 for a one day rental but thankfully we had a free day cert thanks to the "rent 2 free 1 day promo".

We spent the day at “the mall” enjoying the cold weather and various monuments that DC is famous for. We were overly ambitious and wanted to walk the entire area but gave up half way through and just drove the rest of the way.

Hello Mr. Lincoln

Whjte House from a far
We ended the day in D.C. with some comforting dim sum thanks to recommendation from yelp. We were lucky to have just missed the crowd as the lines were long by the time we were done. The dim sum was definitely better than what we get in Austin and the roasted BBQ pork belly was one of the best we've had in the US. 

Since it was still too early when we got close to the airport, we decided to park the car at the cellphone area and got a one hour nap right in the car.
