A weekend in Washington DC

A weekend in Washington DC

Last weekend I went to Washington DC with some friends. We rented a car and we drove from New Paltz to the capital of the USA. It was a long travel but it was absolutely worth to do it!
We saw the Capitol, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, and we visited the National Gallery of Art, the National Air and Space Museum, and the Holocaust Museum.
I also would have liked to visit the National Museum of American History, the National museum of Natural History, and the Arlington National Cemetery, but we didn’t have enough time.
These museums are so interesting that it is really hard to spend less than five hours inside! I think that the National Gallery of Art is quite similar to the Louvre Museum in Paris or to the Metropolitan Museum in New York City and it contains some of my favorite paintings. The collection is really wide and it covers 700 years of art history.
Moreover I was positively impressed by the Holocaust Museum. It’s really well done and full of old videos, photos and articles.

My first days in New York City

I arrived in New York City few days before the start of the IIB program because I wanted to orient myself in the city. My flight landed in the late afternoon and this allowed me to have a wonderful view on the city by night.
Especially I would like to suggest to visit the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and to go on the top of the Rockefeller Center or of the Empire State Building.
