This weekend, at fall-break, Erika, Thao, Lovisa, Cecilia and me went to D.C. It took us around 7 hours to get there from New Paltz with two stops; one in New York City where we changed bus and then the second one in New Jersey.
We saw a lot, and we walked a lot. We saw The White House, of course, the monument, and the Lincoln Monument, etc. We also went to Georgetown for some shopping. You should definitely visit Georgetown if you are going to D.C. And of course we ate a lot of good food.
I would recommend this trip to everyone, it was very nice!
