Airport, Crown Plaza, and Close Up.

     The starting of our adventure was at the airport. We woke up on Sunday, March 10th, at 4:00 a.m. We all had to be at the airport at 5:30 a.m. At 7:30 a.m., we all had to be on the plane. The trip was about 6 hours to get there. The funny thing is that we left on the day the time change happens. So we all had to move our time an hour forward. The time we were supposed to arrive in D.C. was abut 3:30 p.m.

     When we arrived at Washington D.C., we were all transferred to the hotel that we were staying at called Crown Plaza. Crown Plaza is on 1480 Crystal Drive, Arlington VA, United States. The rating of this hotel is exactly 4.2/5. The program that this hotel was forming was called Close Up. We weren't the only ones who entered the program. Many schools from around the USA applied.

     The point of Close Up is for students to actually see and understand the role of the government. Some say that this program is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students  put all the history they learned and show it to them in real life. Students do so many things in this program. They reenact the debates the government does, they search through the history of the American political system, see and explore the many memorials and monuments in Washington D.C., AND SO MUCH MORE!!!
