Today I woke up at 3:45 AM. I ate a small breakfast of egg and cheese on an english muffin, packed up my bags, and headed to school. When I got there, I found my group and got on the bus. Unfortunately, my friend Emma and I got the last seat on the bus. If you don’t know why I italicized that, you’ve probably never been on a bus. *Cough, cough: it’s next to the bathroom!* That was probably the only downside of the day.
After a couple hours, we stopped at a restaurant to go to the bathroom. Then, after that, we stopped at yet another rest stop to eat. We were almost there! It had been about 8-ish hours. Our first stop was the Air and Space Museum. It wasn’t the official one, but I think there are a couple of them, so this was just one of them. It had mostly planes and ships.
From there, we headed to a mall. I got a super delicious slice of white pizza. For dessert, I had a frozen yogurt. Personally, I think it’s one of my prettiest and most yummiest creations! 😉
Vanilla fro-yo topped with coconut, mochi, blueberries, blueberry boba balls, and caramel sauce.
We headed to The D.C. Mall, where we saw lots and lots of monuments, the first being the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
The Vietnam Wall. Very hard to take photos of, as it is reflective, but it was beautiful and I managed to get this shot!

That was the end of the first day!

Today I woke up and went to breakfast at the place we are staying at. I had french toast, eggs, and some fruit. Our first stop was Newseum, which is a museum all about journalism. We saw a 4-D movie that was super duper cool. We didn’t see everything there, but got to do a news broadcast exhibit with a green screen. You can control it all by yourself and it was a lot of fun and really interactive! I don’t have any pics of it, though. I think I have a video somewhere on my phone.
All of the groups then went down to the Holocaust museum, but there weren’t enough tickets, so mine didn’t get to go. 😦 Instead, we went to the Department of Agriculture for lunch because we had walked a ton and were starving! The food options there were endless, and I am so glad we got to eat there. I made a salad with spinach/mix of greens, chickpeas, cucumbers, tomatoes, with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.
Next stop was the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History! It was gorgeous inside and I can’t believe I was in the same place that Ben Stiller walked during Night at the Museum!!! There was a butterfly exhibit going on, and it was only six bucks so we decided to check it out. I was not disappointed because they were so pretty! I took a ton of photos.
Okay so that’s all I’m gonna share with you guys today. I will do a next part tomorrow!! My computer is slow and I wanted to get at least part one of this up!
