Washington DC Diary – Part 2

One thing that immediately strikes me when visiting the USA is the overwhelming presence of national flags everywhere, nowhere more obvious that in the capital. Public building, private houses, buses, metro trains and many flag poles proudly fly the stars-and-stripes. Coming from the United Kingdom, where flying Union Jacks are a relatively rare sight, this display of the national flag is an indicator of the deep thread of national pride that runs through the population.
