To all my Europe 2014 students,
Here are the places mentioned in the Lonely Planet Guidebook we’ve been reading:
What a gorgeous day in DC! We thought about everyone in Colorado with the snow as we walked through a city full of sunshine. It was nice to walk without our rain ponchos and layer of clothes.
We stopped by the White House for a quick picture. We are ever hopeful that some day we will be able to visit inside again. After that we arrived at the Newseum for three hour visit and we stayed for five hours! The children learned so much and had a blast trying their skills at reporting the news, learning about JFK, and making ethical decisions about the first amendment. We finally tore them away to visit the Library of Congress for some and the Air & Space Museum for the scientists in our group.
After that, we visited Ben’s Chili Bowl which is an experience not to be missed in DC. With Mr. Smith telling the stories of the famous visitors, and his delightful manners, he kept us entertained and well-fed.
Swimming and packing end our day. Tomorrow the whole group is going for an early morning swim before visiting the Museum of the American Indian. Lunch will be American Indian from their cafeteria and then, home! We leave DC around 4:30 PM and will arrive in Denver, CO around 6:30 PM. Families, remember to call the update line for complete details.
