After settling into my apartment, my friends and I went to eat a delicious lunch at the cute cafe two doors down called "Romeo and Juliet." Our waiters and many people we encountered today have unique accents. There are so many people from all over the world that come to live in D.C. They each have a different story and it is amazing to be apart of it!
The rest of the day today we spent walking around the city learning where everything was located. We saw amazing architecture in museum buildings, walked around the National Mall, learned how to ride the metro (the underground transportation system), saw The White House which was surrounded all over by guards, and enjoyed watching the sun set behind the Washington Monument. It has been quite a day!
