I travelled to Washington with a friend for a few days of sightseeing. Susan gave us a wonderful tour of Washington's monuments and memorials on our first morning. She was very entertaining and knowledgeable and her tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. A perfect introduction to Washington!
