Today was a long day….we’re at the train station now and it’s 10:21 at night. We just got through watching the circus and we all had a blast! 10 of us were down low in the 5th row while the rest of the group was in a private suite up top. We saw all kinds of things tonight, from dancing elephants to feisty lions, a human cannon ball and everything in between. It certainly was an entertaining night…..except for the horses that just walked in circles. Ask your child what the most boring part of the night was and 10 to 1 they’ll say the horses.
Earlier today we toured the Capitol and got to see where the President makes his State of the Union speech. We were assisted by the staff members of Representative Hirono and Senator Inouye’s offices. Unfortunately we weren’t able to meet Senator Inouye as planned as he was in a meeting that required his vote and could not leave to meet us. None of the other Hawaii politicians were in their offices either but we still stopped by to offer our omiyage gifts.
After our visits we headed to Chinatown to see the famous Ford Theatre where Abraham Lincoln was shot. We then had dinner at 5 Guys Burgers before heading over to the circus.
Tomorrow the forecast is calling for thunderstorms so we may need to adjust our schedule. Wish us luck!
