Moonlit Bike Ride

Last Thursday one of the girls in our group put together a full night of activities. Since we have class on Friday's and no work it makes Thursday feel like a weekend night. We started off at the Kennedy Center where they have free concerts every night at 6:00 365 days of the year. How great is that? We saw Eric Lindell and his band. They are from New Orleans and play R&B/soulful/jazz type of music. I actually really liked some of his songs. It didn't hurt that random people in the audience were breaking out full dance moves like the sprinkler.

After the concert we headed to Chipotle for a little bite to eat and then a smaller group of us rented bikes for the night. We started in Georgetown and rode to the Lincoln Memorial all the way down the mall to the Washington memorial and then on to the Capitol through the White House and back to the good old Barlow Center where we live. It took us about 2 and a half hours because we kept stopping to take in the sights. If you ever come to Washington DC make sure to go see the memorials at night when they are all lit up. It was gorgeous!

The Capitol
I didn't get a picture of the White House because the police were yelling at us to keep moving!

There are bells throughout every building linked to the Capitol that ring every time a vote is going through the House.
