Washington D.C.

Washington D.C. is the capital of the United States. It is also 15 minutes away from where I went to college. In the winter of 2014 I returned to College Park, Maryland and Washington D.C. for a weekend trip. My primary reason for the visit was to attend a fundraiser organized by the Change Agent Network (CAN), but I managed to pack in a good amount of sightseeing during the trip. Below you will find a list and brief description of my weekend.
