My first trip to Washington D.C. was very educational. Honestly, it was difficult to find a passion for the history of the United States. I consider myself a bit of a European history snob and this was way out of my comfort zone. I mean, we have really only been in America for almost 400 years. Compared to the rest of Europe that is small change. Contrary to my beliefs, the United States is full of fascinating historical events and artifacts. I found myself biding for time and having to choose between the Natural History Museum and the Spy Museum. Of course we all know the winner of that one don’t we? By the way, did you know that watermelons were brought over to America by African slaves?
