More pics from DC at around Midnight

After I left the Washington Monument, I took a long walk around the tidal basin to see the Jefferson Memorial then went around to the FDR Monument. The latter was really cool and I had never seen it before. It was a series of waterfalls over granite and a bunch of FDR’s quotes etched into the walls, all of which look rather Marxist in retrospect (Freedom from want… etc.).

It was about 1 AM when I got to this memorial and Ii was all alone, except for a rather well-dressed man, although he was without pants, wading through the bottom of the waterfall. At first, I thought he was drunk, but then I realized he was gathering up coins with his feet before bending down to get them. When he saw me, he screamed and scampered off into the night dropping coins right and left. It was a really surreal scene, but funny.
