  • Said Guard soldiers visited here on Sunday, but Saturday and Sunday because of absences is not allowed. Then on Monday the next day went out again. Metro was jammed with baseball fans head to national stadium. All wore the Red uniform of the nationals. Get off the Metro, while walking along the coast, arrived at the Naval Museum. And fill out the documents passed at the visitor center located near the gate and be submitted with a passport, get one permit. Got a site map I was shown how to get to the Museum, walk along the directions, with admission to the Museum. Was discussed along with the exhibits is the history of the United States Navy, but the training aircraft of the cherry blossoms are hung to air, were exhibited. Read the description a very unpleasant. From Ohka or Baka Bomb had been introduced. It was another cherry name fool bomb. Young people were distracted by the cherry blossoms will not fool bomb was outraged. However, for the word "Baka" Stupid in English that was described. Was not a fool. Stupid, stupid, or the words are better than the Fool and thought, and then I interpreted to mean ridiculous,. It would act drove people to be sure, and with a bomb, encroaching on the enemy was in acts unthinkable for Westerners. Seen as a deviant militarist end, there is no use. Suicide squad and desperation squad is fundamentally different. Die hard is prepared to die if you die the worst thing. Commando was a desperate team. My gloomy thoughts as I watched this poor Ohka kamikaze aircraft.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
