The first thing that the walkway outside the white house reminds you of is Rajpath in New-Delhi. The white-house is grand and the airspace above is restricted to a handful of air vehicles. The White house and the U.S Capitol are situated directly in line with each other and the Capitol is an even more majestic building. The dome can be seen from miles away. Washington is a city seen best by walking and its extremely peaceful. There are cameras literally everywhere and the city has a very rich history. Signified by the sheer number of museums in the city.
