Despite this being way long overdue, here is a glimpse of my visit to the capital of the United States, Washington, DC. It’s been almost two months since I came back, and frankly, it is only now that I get to think that I did enjoy myself somehow. You see, the magic of traveling and seeing and experiencing new places wasn’t quite there with me as I traipsed around DC. Remember, my little girl was hospitalized when I was there, and half my mind was in the Philippines. Despite that, as always, I am thankful for the opportunity and experience!
So these are where I went on my side trips (will not probably post the official meetings!). I was very happy to have friendly “aunties” and “uncles” who made time to tour us around on our free time. For some places, we just walked around and took in the beauty of the city. It was a little rainy the time we were there, which was unusual they say, but I liked that it was busy but not manic-busy. It had old world charm, mainly because of the brownstones that dotted most of the streets, and there were no high rise buildings unlike in many urban cities in the US. I was told that this was because there is a law prohibiting the construction of structures higher than the US Capitol. We got a little as far as Virginia.
