Washington D.C.!

Greetings from Washington D.C.! After a tiresome day of traveling on Tuesday, my journey in D.C. started yesterday! We woke up late and then took the metro into the city. We wanted to just get our bearings yesterday, so we only visited locations for a short amount of time. We ate lunch at the capital cafeteria then went to the Library of Congress. The outside was just the beginning of its beauty - the inside was decorated so gorgeously! It is amazing how much detail went into these buildings.

In fact, I'm re-realizing how interesting history is after all. Taking AP US history this year in school has given me some inner knowledge of the history of the United States, and it's just really insightful in my opinion. Yesterday was just a little taste of what the rest of this trip is going to look like! :) We took a night bus tour of some of the known monuments, as well, but we plan on visiting them during the day for a better look anyway.

This post was supposed to go out last night - but the in-room internet connection was horrible and my photos would not load to flickr. Right now I'm with my mom at the bar and grill connected to the hotel that has free wifi! We are sharing a bowl of soup as I'm finishing up this post... We plan on visiting at least one of the Smithsonian museums next, today!

Talk to you soon!

  10. Aw, I've still never been to D.C.! These photos are making me want to go ( I used to have zero interest in visiting the capital for whatever reason). Also, AP US history! I never took it (I took AP Art History instead) but I kind of wish I did when I was in high school because all my friends loved it. Ah well :)
