I’m happy to say that this year, I had the opportunity to celebrate 4th of July in none other than D.C.!! Yes, it was wonderful. Yes, it was crowded. And yes, it was unbelievably hot and humid! Coming from LA, I’m used to the heat. 100° doesn’t phase me, but humidity…I can do without.
My friend from Wellesley (the same person who is
teaching not teaching me Portuguese) has an internship in D.C. working for Governor Patrick of MA. She was kind enough to host me for about a week and take me to all the touristy sites.
We ended up walking everywhere. We also ate a lot, so I guess that balanced out.
It was a long weekend and since pictures are worth a thousand words, here you go:
By the time Mon. came, I was so exhausted of taking photos, so I didn’t. Now I regret not photographing all the fireworks, but oh well.
I hope everyone else (at least those of you in the U.S.) also had a great 4th of July weekend!
A final note: I had a great time in D.C., but I still missed my wonderful coworker Meg. 🙂
