Upon arriving at the program and after I had taken a shower and nap, the very first thing I did in DC was explore the Dellenback Center where we were going to be living for the semester. I wanted to see where I was in the city so I could share with my friends and family, who always seemed to be asking. Once I climbed the stairs all the way to top and opened the door to the roof, I immediately saw the Capitol building. Of course I pulled out my iPhone to capture where I was. It let everyone back home know I had arrived safe, and had found my new home.
