Monday in D.C.
It felt pretty cool being in D.C. after last night's news. Staying up to watch the numbers of people pile up outside of the White House just added to the strong American pride already portrayed here. The tours today were very interesting. The sights definitely support the reason for making the trip. This place is definitely a must-see. After getting called back through a security check and having the train ticket-taker thinger (yes, I made that word up) try to keep me from going with the class, the day proceeded very smoothly for both me and the class. Hopefully tomorrow brings another day of opportunity with a few less obstacles. I am also going to try to demonstrate a little more common sense over the next two days as well. After all, "it's not rocket science."
