Well, it is official. I am going to Washington, D.C. with my internship. We will be having our National Advisory Panel meeting which is where everyone who advised our program meets once a year to discuss our progress, next steps and plans for the future.
Thanks to my well connected father we are also on the waiting list to tour the White House while we’re in town. We’ll know by early next week whether we get to go or not. We’re also planning on seeing the Capital building, Supreme Court, several monuments, the Holocaust museum and part of the Smithsonian. Does anyone have any suggestions on what we should do while we are there?
We’re staying 2 different places – the Marriott Wardman and the Holiday Inn Capitol. They both look really nice. The second one my Mom stayed at and it is steps away from everything!
I’m really looking forward to the trip because I’ve never really been to DC before. Junior year of high school we went to Arlington Cemetery and to several of the memorials. But, we really just drove through on the bus.
