U nlike our standard Indian-American trips to Niagara Falls, which we took as carpools with a few other Indian families, this was just the three of us. The first thing we did when we got there we parked in the garage of Arlington Cemetery and ate our pre-packed pulao and curries in the car. Later we did a trolley tour of the whole city and a walking tour of Capitol Hill. We walked around the National Mall and visited a few of the museums, spending a lot of time in the Air and Space Museum. I also particularly remember enjoying the dinosaurs at the Natural History museum.
