The landscapes one can see on the trip to Charlottesville, Virginia are beautiful. There are a lot of fields, crops, and little valleys. Even though the bus left from Union Station in DC one hour late, I really enjoyed the trip and the view.

Saturday we went to the Folklife festival put on by the Smithsonian. They had booth set up about the Americas, fashion, as well as a bunch of booths for Hungry. It was fun walking around and seeing all the displays. They also had food, so we got some Chicken and Waffles and fresh fruit.

It’s been a busier week than usual. On Wednesday, we went to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I didn’t foresee sitting in on an address by the NASA Administrator (which is apparently the position of head honcho).
