Most of my classmates in the MPA programme are heading to the heart of American politics, Washingston, D.C. We leave on Wednesday morning and return by Sunday morning.
Thursday is the first full day of the trip. We go to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in the morning and to the Canadian Embassy in the afternoon. In the evening we meet up with some students from the Georgetown Public Policy Institute.
On Friday, we spend most of the day at The Brookings Institution. Near the end of the day we go to Capitol Hill to learn about the role of congressional staff.
Saturday is a free day for us to explore on our own. Any suggestions on where to go or what to see? Later that evening, we board the bus drive through the night and across the country, back to Kingston.
