- Sunday, November 20, 2011– Departure day! We had to arrive at the high school at 3:45 A.M, and didn’t get to D.C. until 1 A.M. It was one of those days that made me especially thankful for coffee.
- Monday, November 21, 2011- It was a dreary day in D.C., but we had lots of fun. After strolling though the Smithsonian and many art museums, we took a ride on the carousel in the mall- we may be teenagers, but it was our favorite part of the day! We also visited the reflecting pool; isn’t it just beautiful?
We also found the perfect tree for leaf-fights. I promise we’re not as immature as we sound!
- Tuesday, November 22, 2011- NEW YORK! We went shopping at FAO Schwartz, ate legitimate New York pizza at Famiglia’s, and even got lost! No worries- we found our band director in a McDonald’s. As a high school theater geek, my favorite park of our stay in New York was seeing Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. Of course, I took a TON of pictures.
