    On the Way to Ny.

    I have been through there sooo many times on the way to NY and back.  One time my dad decided to take us into the city to ride around and see the White House and such.  There was sooo much traffic and we later discovered that we should've left out the detour.  I...

    I Love Dc

    I went last Saturday!  I took the Metro in.  I love riding the Metro.  It is like a mini United Nations!  People of every race from countries all over the world all peacefully riding together.  Too bad the whole world can't learn from the Metro! ...

    I grew up in the mid-Atlantic region, and when I was a kid, my family would go on a vacation every summer.  One year we went to Washington DC and I got to see a bunch of things - the zoo, some museums, maybe even the White House.  It's been a long time, so I don't...

    On Holiday

    2001 Presidential Inauguration

    Our ROTC was supposed to march there, but sadly, we couldn't. But we went anyway. & it was nice. I loved the museums, like the space center, the US Mint, the white house, etc.

    Becoming My Favorite Vacation Spot

    DC has so much to see and do, and most of it is free! I can get there easily on Amtrak, then ride the Metro everywhere once I'm there. I love it.

    I was one of many interns in the Winter of 1997. I lived in Virginia but rode the Blue line everyday, then the Red. I loved DC. It was one of the best times in my life. My favorite place to visit has to be Mount Vernon, though. It's peaceful and beautiful. I get to walk through...
