…And Away Again

I shall post the next part of my ongoing story tomorrow in all likelihood, but I decided to write a short post tonight about my upcoming trip. Yes, another one.

My brother is graduating college, and my mother and I are flying to Chicago next Wednesday to join him in this exciting time. After his graduation, we’ll be helping him move out of his current apartment and relocate to Washington DC where he will be moving. I’ve seen Chicago before, recently even, and it is a marvelous city. However, what I’m most excited about this trip, apart from seeing my brother walk the walk in his cap and gown, is seeing Washington DC, home of the White House, home of our current president, Mr. Obama.

There is something so exciting about going to the hub of the US government – the city is supposed to be amazing, young and lively. There are, of course, the museums and the various memorials and sites to see around the city, but there is also supposed to be a hip and cool music scene apparently. It’s going to be an experience, to say the least.

I shall keep posting as much as I can during my trip, though I can’t promise regular posts – it will probably be like my last trip, a post every few days, sporadically.

  1. Have a great time Ilana. What a great experience and hooray for your brother. I’ve always wanted to go to the capital but have never gone. I hope you have a terrific time. Be safe.

  2. I’ve been to D.C. several times, and have walked all over the city. If you need any tips or suggestions whatsoever let me know!

    For starters, you absolutely must visit the National Archives. It’s where our Declaration of Independence and Constitution are kept. For me, just being in that place is akin to a religious experience.

    See the Lincoln Memorial at night, when it’s lit up. Visit the Air and Space Museum and the American History Museum, at a minimum!

    I could go on and on!

    I am so psyched for you :^)

  3. I hope you enjoy your trip. i would love to visit America one day. Right now I think I just need to get to UAE and then onto Australia. This is going to be one heck of a year. I love the passion behind the idea of what a place represents rather than what it gives you directly.

    I hope you have a great trip! Both of those are supposed to be great cities. I wasn’t in Chicago for long but I liked what I did see.
