We wake up to a cold day, with even colder weather predicted. Oh well.
The room we were given last night at the Phoenix Park Hotel was very small, and the specified queen size bed had shrunk to a double bed, so we didn't have the best of sleep. We send Di down to have a chat with reception to see whether that could be amended, with the result that we should have a bigger room by the afternoon after people checked out. Just pack up your bags and leave in the room and they will take care of the rest.
Sounds good enough, so we do just that, and then wander out to have a look at Washington on a cold Sunday, perhaps 1 degree Celsius or so when we left at 8.30am.
Here is a pic of our hotel Phoenix Park, with the adjecent Dubliner pub and restaurant. Phoenix Park is apparently a park in Dublin, Ireland and this area around Union Station and Columbus Circle was once an Irish enclave.
There is a star studded wall at the World War II Memorial where each star denotes 100 fallen service personnel in the War. There were 4048 stars in that wall... According to sign below it should be 4,053. Tragic waste.
