Anyhoo, after braving the Metro for the first time,
we trudged through the heat and found ourselves at the tallest building in all of D.C..
Thanks to Patrick we know it is 555 feet high and the tip is made of aluminum. No other building (or maybe structure) Washington D.C. is allowed to be taller. Pretty cool!
By the time we got there the tickets to go inside were all sold out so we just looked at it from the outside. The kids wanted to touch it.
