The view from the Washington monument

When I went to school in Georgia tech, Atlanta, the Office of International Education organised a trip to Washington. We went to all the monuments( and there are a lot of them), even to the White house(unfortunately no pics!). But the best part of the trip for me was climbing to the top of the Washington memorial early morning. I spend fifteen minutes atop the memorial watching the capital city come alive. If you are in DC I would recommend doing this. If you not in DC well no worries, here are pictures from my trip (way back in 2008).

The brown building (w/o the hole) is the National Archives which houses the Decl of Independence.( Can you spot the National Cathedral at a distance)

Montreal Street Art

I love the street art in Montreal. It is there almost every where, the main street, the side street, everywhere. So this morning I left my hotel earlier than usual with the task of photographing the art. I managed to click a few before my fingers froze. Oh! and there were tiny snowflakes falling too!!
