Getting to know DC and its sourroundings.

Standard

One week more, and many new things to tell.

It’s been my third week in Washington DC and I’m starting to feel like it’s not summer anymore, two weeks since classes started and everything is overwhelming. I have so many readings and papers to do that I can’t catch up, but it’s okay, I need time to adjust to this new system, everyone of you is probably having the same problem.

Either way I also had time to go to new places and even visit a new city. We are still adjusting to Washington DC, and one of the things that I really love is walking down to Georgetown and looking around all the shops and restaurants. Georgetown is really beautiful and the walk there by the Potomac river is too. One girl from DC told me that the best cupcakes of Washington were there, in a small place named Baked and Wired, so there we went. The place was awesome and we had an oreo cupcake that tasted incredible, the coffee was also really good compared to the ones I have tried in The United States, as coffee here is also different from Spain it has been difficult for me to find one that I really like, but I found it there, and all of you guys should go to try at least the cupcakes, there are so many  cupcakes to choose from and the place is also really cool.

I also want to talk you guys about the gym, I have been going this three weeks, it’s a really good gym and it’s for free. It has all the machines that you could possibly need, the only problem is that there are usually lots of students there, but you should probably be able to use any machine you want if you don’t go at 5 pm.

This week I also went to Baltimore to spend  a day there. Baltimore was really nice but I didn’t like it at much as  Philadelphia because there weren’t many things to visit. Anyways it was a really good place to spend our Saturday, we arrived at 11 am, walked around for a bit and then we had lunch in Hard Rock Cafe,  the food was awesome, as was the place. After lunch we went to the Italian neighbor and we were so lucky because it was the Madonna Arts Festival so the streets were crowded with people and lots of paintings in the floor. It was really beautiful. Then we went to  Fell’s Point neighbor took some pictures and came back to the Inner Harbor. It’s not a must, but you should probably go there to chill and have a nice day.
