The Last Day of Washington D.C

The Washington D.C trip was, in my opinion, was the biggest and best trip of the year. On April 14th, 2016, was the last day of the entire trip. The first thing we did was wake up at 7:30 a.m, Eastern time. We packed our luggage and went to the terrace to eat our breakfast. For breakfast, there was eggs, sausage, brioche bread and cereal. There was also orange juice and apple juice. After we had breakfast, we went to our rooms, got our luggage and checked out of each of our rooms.

Before we headed to the airport, we stopped at the Smithsonian and went to two of the seventeen buildings at museum. We got to see the actual Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights. We also got see the exhibit of civil rights, where Rosa Parks fingerprints are. Then we went to the gift shop and some people got a few things. I got a coaster of Rosie the Riveter who is saying " We Can Do It" (Rosie is a woman who represented the woman of America during World War II.) After the gift shop, we went to the Air and Space museum in the Smithsonian and got to see some of the real planes or replicas of planes that were flown by famous pilots. For example, we got to see the actual plane that the Wright Brothers flew.

Since the only nearby restaurant was McDonald's, we went there for lunch. I had gotten the double cheeseburger and it was very filling. After that, we went to the gift shop and then headed to the airport. At the airport, we went to a Starbucks and to a very political gift shop. I had gotten a pair of glasses that had the United State's flag on it for someone that did not get to go to Washington. Then we got to our gate, got on the plane and headed back to San Francisco.

Overall, this trip was once-in-a-lifetime experience for me and I am glad that I had gotten to go.
