Exploring Washington, D.C. with CAEP Horticulture Trainees

Several Vietnamese trainees from the Chef’s Garden in Huron, Ohio ventured to the nation’s capital to explore the history and culture of the United States and take in one of America’s favorite pastimes-baseball! The group was accompanied by a supervisor from the Chef’s Garden. Horticulture trainee, Long Tran shares some favorite memories from the trip below.

“We visited many landmarks in Washington, DC.  The United States Capitol is very lovely. When we visited the Capitol building, we arrived early, checked in, and then explored the visitor center. Our guide was awesome. He was so much fun and kept it interesting.  Next stop was the Lincoln Memorial reflecting pool. We walked around and the view from across the Memorial Bridge towards Arlington Cemetery was quite impressive. After that, we stopped by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

We didn’t have enough time to see all the museums on the Mall, so we picked a couple that intrigued us the most. First up was The National Air and Space Museum which we got to see the Wright Brother’s airplane, Amelia Earhart’s, and artifacts from NASA’s space station.

We also saw many cool dinosaur bones and the hope diamond at the National Museum of Natural History. And to top off the trip, we saw the Washington Nationals Baseball Team win. I just want to say thank you to my boss for giving me the opportunity to see Washington, D.C.!”
