USA | HI Washington, District of Columbia

 
USA | HI Washington, District of Columbia

After almost two days of flying from Manila to Hongkong to Vancouver to Montreal, finally arrived on our first stop and capital city of the United States – Washington, District of Columbia! I was very excited to get the much-needed rest and at the same time eager to finally get to see around the city which is home to all three branches of the federal government, as well as the White House, the Supreme Court and the Capitol Building.

Our room was a private one for two overlooking the beautiful city of Washington DC. On our second stay in the city, we experienced one fully equipped with a self-service kitchen and own comfort room.

On our second day in the city, we joined the free city tour at the Eastern Market & Capitol Hill Walking Tour. Despite of the cold and rain, we pushed through with around twenty in the group from people across Asia, Europe and America. We took some time at the market looking for great finds, both food and souvenirs are available. And met a young fellow from Israel who have been travelling after an internship from South America to America, where DC is his second to the last stop. We chatted more with few others in the tour and realized that most of them are going to New York as their last stop. We then proceeded to walk until the Capitol Hill and took some group shots. My favorite thing in choosing hostels is that you can meet interesting people, not only from different places but from different walk of life which is a breath of fresh air in terms of views, opinions and perspective.
