It all started one day before the Inauguration in Dupont Circle.
'The target practice on the giant Bush doll began around 11:00 in the morning and was still going five hours later, as thousands of people walking through the circle stopped to pick up a shoe and wing it at the outgoing president. Some threw fastballs . Others tied several together in an attempt to land them on Bush's long Pinocchio-esque nose.'
'Children took part. ('Okay. One more shoe, kids,' said one parent.) Some folks simply walked up to the doll and kicked it in the shins. It fell over at one point and people rushed it, beating it with shoes,'
This was up for less than an hour, the artist wanted to make a replica similar to the one of Saddam Hussein in Bagdag. He did not have a permit so this was taken down after an hour but people had already started throwing shoes, pinching and hitting the statue lol.
This is the reflecting pool accross the Capitol. During summer time, it has little waves and ducks swim in it.It was frozen on Inauguration day due to the weather and I can't beleive people actually walked on it, someone almost got swallowed in a hole right in front of me, he was standing on the pool dancing and it cracked right where his foot was lool. Needless to say he screamed for help. That's what you get for acting a fool.....
These are main streets for cars on regular days, on Inauguration day cars were replaced by people. It was a very very long walk and my feet are still hurting!
Try to imagine that this is actually the 3rd Street Tunnel where cars drive through and it was packed with people walking! The lenght of the tunnel is about a mile and a half.
When I say I've never seen that many people in my life in one place, I really mean it....
There were a lot of these, almost at every corner! People were stopping for hot dogs and drinks...Hustlers were everywhere, you could even get "Obama Pretzels", at every street corner a vendor was trying to sell you Obama buttons, t-shirts, flags, frames, collector's items, Obama hot dogs, .......
Obama Energy Stix....
Nothing feels like a presidential blanket to brave the cold .... ( A lot of people had blankets wrapped around them, especially tourists from the South who are not used to the cold weather, lol)
People trying to exit at a local metro station.. And I thought NY had the busiest subways?
Guantanamo Protesters dressed as prisoners. What I love about living in DC is that there is always someone protesting about something! People are just angry in this town lol.
