Beautiful Washington, D.C.

I live near one of the most beautiful cities in the world. When I was 17 and graduated from the American High School of Milan, Italy, I took a month to travel around the United States before I started college. The first city I visited was Washington and I fell in love with the city. It reminds me of European capitals, no wonder because Pierre L'Enfant, who had designed much of Paris a couple of centuries ago, also designed much of Washington.

After the Thai Festival, I decided to do a little sightseeing. It was a beautiful day. I'm going to try to get back this coming weekend and spend the whole day being a tourist!
