Monuments Cruise

At 3:30 pm, we boarded the Miss Mallory for a 45-minute cruise to Georgetown, the oldest neighborhood in Washington, D.C. Dr. Hallion saw us off, waving from the dock as the boat pulled away. We were happy to find a big air-conditioned room on the boat, and some of the group stayed there, playing cards or just resting; but some of us preferred the view from the Miss Mallory's upper deck, where the sun was strong but there was a beautiful breeze!

When we got to Georgetown, our first stop was Urban Outfitters, a giant clothing store on M Street. I hate to shop, so I went home soon after that. I got home at 7 pm, exhausted, but I found out that the group stayed on in Georgetown, shopping and eating, for several hours, getting home at 11:30. Fortunately, Sunday morning is free time so we can all sleep in!

Here are my pictures from the cruise, plus a few from Georgetown:

Hi, Nina and AGU students.

It sounds as if the AGU America 2007 group is starting things off energetically!

I enjoyed the photos in the slide show.

I send my very best wishes to all of the students from AGU and hope that you will have a wonderful time in the U.S.!

Hello, Nina!
Reading your post about shopping at Georgetown really reminds me of the day we spent there last year. I still remember the street I walked with Yuiko when we visited Urban Outfitters! ^^

Hi, Nina and students,

I'm sure you're having a wonderful time there. I hope I can visit Washington and Georgetown with my family before moving back to Brazil, my country. Now, I'm here in Key West. Do you have any idea where this is?
