Abigail Foy *Yesterday since I posted after 12

The days just seem to get colder and colder. Each day continues to start off with lectures at the University of Washington, D.C. It has been a great accomplishment the past two morning that Autum, Julia and I have made it to the University without getting on the wrong Metro....we seem to be getting the hang of things.

This morning in particular was extremely interesting because we were able to listen to and do a Q&A with George Bush's Press Secretary, Dana Perino. She was extremely honest with our audience and was very informative when questions were asked about the Bush administration and their choices and actions that were shown through the press.

The Canadian Embassy was also a highlight of today although our speaker, Roy Norton who is a Minister (Congressional, Public & Intergovernmental Affairs) for the Embassy. He gave us and incredible insight into what Canada thinks about the US and our policies on anything from our form of government to our different health care programs.

Some of us also visited the US Archive Museums and got to go through a couple of exhibts that includeds the orignal Declaration of Independence, Magna Carta and Bill of Rights, along with many others.
