The day started off with a bus ride to Georgetown. For me, exploring a new place is the best when you do it alone, but even though we were supposed to having the buddy rule. I didn’t do it on purpose to leave the group. It just seems to happen that way a lot. All I can say about Georgetown is that I really do appreciate the architecture but not the summer weather. The way the building are designed like an old time castle makes me weirdly finds some inner peace.
Since we are a Chinatown organization, we had to go to Chinatown, but there was no Chinatown in my eyes. DC’s Chinatown has been gentrified like it was no one’s business. Like seriously, who serves a soup dumpling without soup? Like, come on. I didn’t even knew Chipotle had a Chinese name. How sad. They try to show happy Chinese seniors on this big monitor on the Verizon Center, but that is really just facade was it probably used to be. DC Chinatown is probably a representation of what our federal government like, a facade. Well pushing the political views aside, I’m seeing more of what DC is really about today. Hope tomorrow won’t be a roller coaster.
