American historical places

Thursday, we heard very interesting presentation at the Inter-American Development Bank. Inside of it, it didn’t look like a bank. It was very beautiful. There were many national flags and a water fountain. Ms. Miyakawa described us many things and guided us. We could go to the room of the director’s Board room. I’m interested in working at developing countries, so I asked her some questions. Her answers were interesting for me.
Friday, we watched a baseball game. I’m not so familiar with baseball, but I enjoyed watching a baseball very much:-) Afterwards, we also saw some fireworks. I like it, so I was happy. Compared with Japanese one, I couldn’t satisfy it. But there were very colorful and beautiful.
Yesterday, we went to museum, memorials and Washington monument. Lincoln’s monument was so big that I was hard to take some photographs:-( During waiting for entering the Washington monument, Nikki taught us Animal games. We couldn’t do the game well, but finally, we could do it smoothly. I want to play more games!

Hello, Misa! ^^
I'm wondering what you asked to the lecturer at the IDB.

Also, it seems that you guys love to play games! (And volleyball, right?)

Misa, my butterfly,
You are a very quick learner. I was surprised how quickly you all picked up on the Zoo game. I'm sure we will play again very soon!

Congratulations on uploading the photo to your post! Well done! If you have time, add some pictures to your earlier posts. You can also do this when you go home to Japan, using your own pictures.

I wonder how Japanese fireworks are different from American ones. I love fireworks!

You don't have to understand the game of baseball to enjoy participating in such a traditional American cultural experience as a baseball game!

Even though I could not understand the Japanese presentation, I did notice that you were very interested in the presentation. You asked many questions, which showed your interest. I think it is wonderful goal to work in developing countries.
