Washington D.C. Trip

On Wednesday and Thursday PRIED went to Washington, D.C.. First, we went to the D.C. District Court and saw a portion of a criminal trial.  Also, while we were at the courts, we met two judges and were able to ask them questions about the legal system and their jobs.  The second thing we did was a night bike tour of the monuments.  Some of the monuments we saw were the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Jefferson Memorial.  On Thursday we went to the Capitol building and got a tour from an intern that works for Senator Chris Coons.  On the tour we saw the old Supreme Court room, the old Senate floor, and the rotunda.  Later that day we went to the Newseum.  At the Newseum we saw the FBI exhibit.  In the exhibit there were hacking stories, terrorist stories, and kidnapping stories.  I really hope we do this again.
