My Day in D.C.

On my recent trip to USA, I planned to spend an entire day exploring the National Mall in Washington D.C. I'd heard amazing stories of the museums, monuments and exhibits available in the country's capital and I was beyond excited. Little did I know that one day would not be near enough to appreciate the beauty that is The National Mall.

I started my trip at 7 a.m., as I boarded the train from home to the nation's capital with as many flyers and brochures as I could possible carry. The ride took a little more than an hour and gave me ample time to read up on the exhibits that were currently displayed. As I walked out of Smithsonian Train Station and began my day's journey, I couldn't help but smile at the thought of the many historic events that have occurred in my surrounding; the land where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his historic "I Have a Dream" speech, where great leaders of our country have been inaugurated, where laws that shape the U.S.A. are made. As I stood on the grassy lawn in between the Washington Monument and the Capital Building, and surrounded by monuments and museums all around me, a strong feeling of national pride overcame me.
