19th Aug 2011... I offerred to take my friend "Da" visit Washington DC as she mention before that she never been there yet. I picked her up at her place at 9am. and headed to Washington DC. From her house took about 3 hours. We got there and first place we would like to visited was US capital so I was looking for closer parking lot. Yeah! I found, but there were signs around said permition parking only. I saw many car did not have permit ticket in the cars but I did not want my car tow then I looked around if can asked someone in charge. There was a person on duty there then I asked him. He said noboby tow my car this time for sure because normally a person in charge will check in the morning. I told me we wanted an hour only. Well, we went to US capital , took many photos and came back to the car in an hour and moved to other area.
Our journy did not finish yet but there was something exciting...grrrrrrrrrrrrrr I forgot to fill the gas and the indicator already show...OMG. That time traffic was bad and also heavy rain. I set GPS looked for gas station first but unfortunately the GPS told " turn left" all the time but that time was NO TURN...grrrrrrrrrrrr
I set the GPS three or four times not sure but after an hour we found the gas station. The GPS told to turn left but my friend said gas station in our front in the right. OH man! I needed to go from the left last lane to the right end lane during heavy rain and many cars. Well, I did it. I fill the gas with the umbrella but still get wet because of the wind blow the rain to me.
Finally, we got back home safe at 10 pm. Anyway , my friend was fun and happy that made me happy too. If I have a chance would love to take her again to visit the places we did not go yet on this day.
