Photos from the trip
My sister unusually emailed me that I should update my blog.
Here you are, it's for you.

Our HQ office is located in the heart of downtown area. Some photos from the last day of my training, after leaving the office.

Magnificent views from the office window. (some dust not on camera but the window)


Actually my days were pretty full and very intense, I did not go out in the evening at all except for some dinner meetups with friends. Just didn't have the energy.

But of course, there was this weekend.
A friend of mine is in DC right now, and I visited her for the weekend. I'd been telling her that I would visit her in the State all through her school years, and never made it. I'm glad I finally did it. Very glad that we became closer also.

In DC, we went to the White House.
But you can't get in, of course.

And let me remind you, there is a fence around the site. No one can just walk up to the building ;)

My favorite part in DC was Smithonian Museum and the Library of Congress.
Smithonian was full of interesting stuffs, like gems and stones, in an enormous amount. If I were a kid, the visit would have definitely changed my life.
Beautiful interior of the Library of Congress

There was a restored library of Thomas Jefferson as part of the exhibition.
That was the most impressive library I've ever seen. Bookshelves were lined up in circular position. Jefferson used to sit in the middle and read as he desired picking up books from surround. Amazingly, the collection consist of all kinds of books you can imagine, such as philosophy and politics (naturally, he was a politician), zoology, biology, archaeology, literature, history, mining, and so on. What kind of politician reads books on African animals? but you can find it here.
DC was really really hot (about 35 C) but I loved it.
Oh, by the way, DC's subway is the coolest in the world.


OK, there was more, but that's it for today!
