Washington: Sydney Ly (10)

What were you craving from back home during your trip?

“I was craving Asian food badly. There is nothing better than a bowl of char siu, roast duck, chinese broccoli and steamed rice.”

You get to go to Washington again for free, but you cannot brush your teeth; would you still do it?

“I would definitely go again, because I could live off of gum, floss and mouthwash.”

What was one location that you wanted to go to during your trip, but did not have the chance to?

“I wanted to go to the Seattle Art Museum, but I did not have the chance since choir was so pressed on time.”

What was the highlight of your trip?

“The highlight of my trip was the last day. It was the award night, and we placed first in our division for choir and got free dinner.”
