We have had a fantastic start to our US Trip! A safe and swift flight was had by all, followed by; a slap up dinner at Washington institution Ben's Chili Bowl and then a night time trip to the Jefferson Memorial. All we need now is some well deserved sleep to prepare for tomorrow!

Our first full day in Washington was a full one and a bit of snow didn't hold us back. We started the day with a tour of Washington D.C. taking in; the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, the Martin Luther King Memorial and the FDR Memorial. Then it was on to lunch and a tour of the Holocause museum, followed by a (rather cold) walk around Arlington cemetery. At the time of typing this the students are working their way around the Mall - truely immersing themselves in American culture!
