I would say today is an actual day one to me, so May 28, 2016, we left the hotel on time at exactly 10 a.m. and head out to the metro station to get our metro card. The metro station we went to is really interesting. So in order to go down to the station we have the taken a long and slow escalator, meanwhile, when we get closer to the station it get darker, which it feels like we are slowly going down into the dungeon, kind of feel a little creepy. However, after we all got our metro card we got out from that dungeon (metro station) and we walk to the bus station and head out to our first location. Our first location is Georgetown University. When we arrived to Georgetown University, is an eye opening to me. My first impression for Georgetown is a really pretty campus and their environment are very nice too. So we walk around the campus for a while, and gather our whole group for the campus tour. Georgetown is actually the oldest catholic University in United State, also low acceptance rate is about 13 percent. Their undergraduate is about 6,400 students, which you can imagine how small their class can be about least than 20 students each class. Students who go to Georgetown University have to live on campus for at least three years, whereas in California’s colleges have to live on campus for at least one year. Fun fact about this college is before student graduate from Georgetown University, first, student must take a selfie with John Carrol's (statue located in the front of the college). Secondly, they have to dance in the fountain. Lastly, students have to steal the one clock hand that is location at one of the building tower. I think that is really interesting. After Georgetown University, we went to grab some lunch for nearby.
After lunch, we all when to National Archives Museum. Something nice about Washington DC is all museum is free admission. It was kind of a lot of people, the first that we went to is to see the Bill of Right and etc. people hand writing in the old days is super nice and talented. Since the museum close at 5p.m., we did have much time to look over everything, so we left the National Archives Museum at 5 p.m. After we left the museum, we all just sat to one side to figure our next tour, because the tour guide might have mistaken our tour date. Meanwhile, I got myself an ice-cream in such a hot and humid weather. Once we got confirmed from our next tour, we all walk to DC Chinatown and got dinner there. We went to eat at one of the famous handmade noodle, is really tasty. Before we get to the restaurant, we have walk pass by the Chinatown gate. The Chinatown gate is actually the biggest gate in the world, and some interesting thing when you know you are in Chinatown is all the restaurant have Chinese directed translate. Now I know what Dunkin Donuts in Chinese is. After dinner, we all walk back to National Mall for our night tour, by the way is actually a long walk. I learn that it took quite a long time to finish build the national monument, also the design for the memorial World War II. The tour and the tour guide was absolutely interesting and fun, but at the same time my feet was hurting so bad from all the walking. I have the hardest time walking back to the hotel because is just so painful, and is only day one. Although, we were out from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. (mostly walking), yet able to go to so many places in one day, I think is worth for the pain.
