We arrived in Washington late in the afternoon. The tour group was taken to dinner and then on a night tour of the illuminated memorials.
The first one was The John F Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts. It is a huge building, so big that I couldn't fit it in the lens of my camera. It was in the pipeline for many years but it was Kennedy who pushed to bring culture to the Capital Washington. It was partly funded by the Federal Govt and partly by private funds.The Kennedys donated $500,000 and Jackie was the chairman of the board.
It was opened in 1971. Bust of JFK by Robert Berks.
The Lincoln Memorial
Lincoln's statue inside the temple. It is huge!
