My Last Day in the 202

I don't think it has hit me that I will be back in Utah tomorrow! These past four months have flown! I am so grateful for the time I got to spend out here and I am going to miss this place and all of my friends I have made! It truly has been a great experience for me and I am so glad I got to come out here and intern!

Today I took my parents to see a Senate Roll Call Vote, because that is by far one of the coolest things to see. My parents loved being able to see all of the senators in action! It was fun to spend my last day here at the Capitol! I am going to miss it!

After that, we had lunch at my very favorite sandwich shop: West Wing Cafe. AMAZING sandwiches (in case you didn't know, sandwiches are my favorite food). 

Then, it was off to the Newseum. The Newseum is one of the COOLEST museums around. It is my second favorite museum in town. It talks about the news and the roll of the media to tell the public the truth about what goes on. I really enjoyed it. I actually spent 2.5 hours in there and wasn't even bored!

After that, Cath and I were done with the museums and sent Dave off to finish his quest to see every single museum in the city. Instead, we hit up Union Station for some shopping!

My last supper in DC was at Pizzeria Uno, which was very very tasty! It was my first time there and it was pretty good!

Here's todays pictures:

Dinner at Pizzeria Uno. We have eaten so much good food this trip! Don't be surprised if I look a little chubby upon my return!

The Berlin Wall at the Newseum

Recovered rubble from September 11 at the Newseum

I thought this was SOO cool! I am OBSESSED with the Amy Poehler and Tina Fey SNL clip of them acting as Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin. This is their SNL costumes from my favorite clip!

More SNL costumes from the 2008 campaign

The Newseum had TONS of newspapers from around the world. Here is today's Salt Lake Tribune paper!

There was also a section that had headlines from each year. This paper was from my birth year- 1989

A cool quote by Lincoln

The cable antenna from the World Trade Center that was recovered after 9/11

The desk of Tim Russert

This map was super interesting. All of the GREEN countries are countries that have freedom of speech. All of the YELLOW countries have partial freedom of speech, and all of the RED countries have no freedom of speech. Crazy right??

A memorial for all of the journalists who died doing their jobs reporting news. It's amazing how many lives are lost by people who are trying to report the truth.

Kelli Young 2050!

Don't you think Cath looks right in her element??

People of Utah- Give me a call this weekend!! Party time!

  3. Well Mongolia's got one good thing going for it, freedom of speech!
