52 States in 8 Months

Back in Delaware after the 2009 Presidential Inauguration

Posted in Inauguration trip by Ulf on January 23, 2009

bild5020Thanks to Alexander’s hospitality, I could spend the first days of this week in Washington, DC. Of course I attended Obama’s inauguration. It was amazing. I’ve never  seen so many people in one place before. We stood at the foot of Washington Monument which is luckily a bit elevated, so we had a very clear view to the Capitol. Still, the Capitol was 1.5 miles away, but they installed TV screens to bring Obama closer :-).

I’ll write a more detailled story about his trip after I finished both the Hawaii and the Christmas diaries.

    Ulf, der Tag war ja super klar. Da hast Du an einem Stück Geschichte teilgenommen.
    Herzlichzen Glückwunsch.
    Hast Du daran gedacht, einen kurzen Artikel für die Sulinger Kreiszeitung zu schreiben.
    Ein ehemaliger Schüler des Nienburger Gymnasiums ASS namens Arne Reis war auch in Washington und hat seine Eindrücke in einem Artikel für die Harke dargebracht.

    Ich glaube, ich verzichte mal auf einen Bericht in der Kreiszeitung.
    Es raubt schon genug Zeit, diesen Blog zu schreiben :-).

    It’s not for the birds, though! ;)

    Keep blogging!
