In the morning of 14th of August, I packet everything and left Vienna behind. The next city to visit was Washington. I planned to hang around the great capitol for 2 days, but sometimes things do not go as planned. The initial plan was to park the car somewhere in the centre of Washington, visit all I could, then go to sleep in Silver Spring, a Washington suburb and repeat the next day, before leaving to Baltimore. Like I said, it definitely did not go as planned.

I entered Washington and got scared when I noticed there was no parking where Google said there would be one. And I sort of drifted in traffic looking like crazy for a place where I could stop the car for a moment so I could check the GPS and choose a destination. And because there was a lot of traffic, I ended up moving around the center of Washington for quite a while, so you could say I saw a lot of it. In the end I found a place where I was able to stop for 5 minutes and by then I was so panicked that I just set the Silver Spring hotel as a destination and left in that direction. It took me about 45 minutes to get there and 30 minutes I drove on street called 16th(apparently somebody low on creativity when naming some streets in Washington). This street was weird like hell, most of it was full of churches. I kid you not, I was actually playing a game, saying “Dang” every time I noticed a building that was not a church. A lot of the churches were Protestant and Reformed, but I also saw a Scientology church.
