In DC we were given free time as long as we made it back to the station in time for the train ride out. On our first stop in DC, we ate at the matchbox, a restaurant with unparalleled sliders and very good pizza. Then we walked up the mall to the Washington monument. It started to rain so most of us found Smithsonian’s to hang out in. We went to a Thai restaurant and I tried Thai food for the first time. All in all, it was very cool to see the nations capital and eat great food.
