On Monday, I really enjoyed the lecture about American Diplomacy which was led by Dr. Marie Hallion. Her lecture was very valuable since we were able to learn it through understanding the basis of American history. The story back into the colonial times to what we are now through revolutions and cold wars was very interesting. We even got a nice pack of folder filled with a brochure and Mount Vernon stamp card. I wish I could ask her more questions :( Best of all, her smile was very lovely :) * :)
Later in the afternoon, we went to a huge shopping mall in Pentagon City connected to a metro station. The mall was gigantic that I cannot see shops one by one. For dinner, I ate a cinnamon pretzel of the Auntie Anne’s (my favorite). The taste reminded me of my days in California!! It was really really tasty!!!! Also I bought souvenirs for my family and friends at the Bath and Body Works (also my favorite). Then I went to Candy Factory to buy some chocolates and candies speaking English with my friend. I bet it is true for everyone for those of us who loves shopping that time goes by really quick and spur of the moment while we enjoy shopping. I had a good night sleep zzz….
