Where I stayed
University Of Maryland
We got the lift up to Jenny's room, we introduced ourself to her room mate Lindsey, she was pretty cool. That night we just sat down and chilled with the girls and told them all about our previous travels.
The next day was an early start because we needed to catch breakfast with the girls and then head of to the bus station to then head into Washington D.C.
The metro station aka the underground there was pretty sweet if you look at the pics you can see, anyways when we arrived we walked to the Washington Memorial to acquire the free tickets which allow us to go up and check out the view from the top
As we had an hour or to wait until our showing we had to find something else to do, if you have been to D.C you will already know exactly what we did if not then; it is surrounded by museums and art galleries so we started off with a Aerospace Museum which I would like to add was very disappointing, next was the Natural History Museum which was pretty cool however we rushed through it only looking in on section which was mammals this was because we had a little over an hour to get through the American History Museum as well.
In the last museum we wondered around for a while trying to find something interesting, this wasn't the easiest of things because the museum was about America haha ;) plus our only interest was to find out about the American Revolution because Rupak and I actually knew very little about this but once again we rushed through it and then left learning very little about it.
Next was the top of the Washington Memorial, the view from the top went on for miles allowing us to really see the layout of the city as well as the renowned landmarks such as the White House, the Lincoln Memorial and the State Capital building.....
Next we walked through the World War 2 Memorial which was really nice with a huge fountain in the middle as well as pillars representing each state divided into Atlantic and Pacific that fort in the war. After this we walked along side the Reflection Pool that lead to the Lincoln Memorial, 20 or so minutes later we left heading towards the White House where we finished our day in the capital city.
We later arrived back at Miss Jenn Fass's to find out that we were heading out to the bars! We grabbed some food, knocked back a few shots then headed out for a massive disappointment..... The bar was empty! Jenny gave Rupak and I money to buy a drink then we sat down chatted with her friends finished our cider then left, disappointing due to the build up but hey.
On our last night we went to a Fraternity to see a friend of Jenny's, the night consisted of Rupak and I having a 5 game winning at bee pong and then heading back and waking up Jenny's roommate! No not because we were a little drunk but because both her and Jenny had class early in the morning so we needed to take out photos with Hatrick n Crew.....
Late morning we got up, tidied the room and left.
College Park was fun, we were fed, drank some beer and finally after my 3rd year working in the US I got to see the Capital City.....
