Can you help?
We are two sad Brits who having looked forward to our trip to Washington for months now fear that the government shutdown will deny us the pleasure of visiting many of the renowned attractions. We cannot delay our trip and will be there from this Sunday. Sooooo - can you help by suggesting things that we can see and do during our few days. And,more specifically, whilst I realise that museums and other buildings will be closed will we still be able to see and photograph the iconic structures along the Mall. We were also about to book a "Monuments by Moonlight" tour but are now unsure that the monuments etc will be lit at night.(emails to the tour companies remain strangely unanswered)
Any suggestions to lift us out of our depression? All info would be welcome.
