Welcome to D.C! 

We woke up and headed down for breakfast with the rest of the uk units sharing dorms with us. Then we headed down to catch a bus then a subway in to Washington DC. Once in Washington DC we arrived at the archives station and walked to the United States capitol. We had a unit picture outside the capitol and saw an american football team also getting a team picture. We then headed down to the Washington memorial and also had a unit picture. We decided to head down to the White House however the view isn't that clear as there was a barrier a distance away from the fence and supposedly some renovations occurring. Our unit then split into groups of our choice so my group headed down to the Lincoln memorial and recreated the captain America scene around the national mall whilst also visiting the Vietnam veterans memorial. We headed back to a station and headed to pentagon city to look at some shops and get some lunch. And spent our afternoon shopping. Once we had headed back to the uni we had dinner and got ready for the uk contingent party. I bought a cheap American flag tie die t shirt for the party earlier. We walked to the party which was on campus but still a trek as the campus was huge. They had stuff from USA, Mexico and Canada and was known as a tri national party. You could have a photo shoot, caricature, hold some animals, play carnival stalls games, practise baseball etc. There was even a replica capitol building, Washington monument and Lincoln memorial. As the party continue more music began to be played till nearly everyone was sweating and dancing. We also received a free ground sheet with the tea bear one to sit on or take back and our leaders collected our #uk24wsjbingo badges that we completed in New York and Washington DC.
