A few weeks ago I had the chance to visit Arlington Cemetery, Old Town Alexandria and the DC Zoo. That Saturday, I visited Arlington and Old Town Alexandria in Virginia. It was humbling to see the resting places of so many great people such as JFK and various Supreme Court Justices. After walking around Arlington, I headed towards Old Town Alexandria for lunch. I love Old Town, especially King Street because of all of the cute little shops and places to eat. It's a great place to see a historic colonial town if you are visiting DC and are short on time. I also paid a visit to Port City brewery, which by the way, has some delicious beer. On Sunday, I decided to visit the zoo. If you know me, you know I love zoos and will go any chance I get. The DC Zoo is one of my favorites because it is one of the few zoos in the U.S that has pandas and its free! (Yay for broke grad students like me!)
Always thankful for their sacrifice
And the law school geek in me couldn't stop fan-girling over seeing these Supreme Court Justices!
I thought these were funny.
JFK and Jackie O
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

My favorite memorial- The Marine Corps War Memorial

Just some of the many animals at the zoo
I really wanted to see the Anteater because it was my college mascot but he didn't want to come out, so this picture of a statute is the best I could do :(
