One seldom finds a city that is not fused with Eastern Culture in one way or another...D.C. is no different. The other night I caught the metro out to Chinatown to meet up with some new friends.

Chinatown is a visually pleasing experience that is characterised by beautiful archways, unique restaurants, a quaint night market and the out-of-place sound of a live country and western cover bands.

 

Although I did not explore every inch of Chinatown I was left with the feeling that it still has a long way to go before it truly becomes a major attraction.

After spending some time in Chinatown I headed out towards The National Mall, an open park area that is home to some of D.C’s most famous attractions. This particular evening a friend and I decided to explore the National Gallery`s outdoor sculpture garden. Numerous photographs and laughs later we managed to capture some of the bizarre and intriguing pieces, my favorite being a tree made completely out of steel. Enjoy the pictures!
