My First stop.


View MY trip around the world on cowboys123's travel map.

I didn't really know what to do with my life or where I wanted to go untill my teacher Chris Made us look into this project, this project will show you some insite on where I would like to go sometime in my life. My First stop on my trip was in Washington, D.c, Washington is located Northeast from Maryland and Northwest from Columbia. When I was in Washington D.c I found out alot like the fact that it was fornally The District of Columbia. That fact explains why it is called Washington D.c, it is also the capitol of our very own The United States found on the sixteenth in the seventeen nintys (16th 1790). The District has a population of about 591,833 but because of the workweek the population rises to about over a million. There was aslo Three main natural flowing streams that I visted were the Potomac River it was beautiful, then I went to the Anacostia River and finally I went to the Rock Creek all very beutifully breath takeing. There was one more it was called Tiber Creek and I remember someone telling me that it was a water course that once passed through The National mall that was fully enclosed underground during the 1870's. The GDP is 46,900 per capita. When I was there the only language I heard people speak was english. I looked into the area of the land and the total area was 68.3 square miles 61.4 square miles of it was land and 6.9 square of miles of it was land. I went to two major tourist attracktions one wich was the Washington Monument of course it was on the must see list onlin. I loved being there I felt so small yet so glad seeing that special place it made me feel important like I was looking at a piece of our very important history. It is the tallest structure in Wasington D.c. The Other place that I went was the Lincon Monument. Thats the place where the big statue of Abraham Lincon sits even today. When you go and see him you feel like you are meeting someone that changed the world for what we know it to be. With out him our world as we know it would ceast to excist. I learned alot on my trip but I got to go now becuause my plane is ready to leave I dont want it to take off with out me blog you soon.
