baha blog 5The last stop on my road trip: Washington D.C.! There is an official feeling of energy here in the hustle and bustle on the streets. It feels like people know what they’re doing, and they know what they’re doing is important. I took a tour of the White House, walked The Ellipse and generally explored all around the Washington Monument, Reflecting Pool, Lincoln Memorial and Capitol Building. The Smithsonian is incredible. Unfortunately, I didn’t give myself even close to enough time to explore all of the museums, so someday I will need to come back with the express purpose of working my way through each of the museums.

My mom travels a lot, but the one place she hasn’t made it to yet is D.C. When I left, I promised her that I would FaceTime® with her from the National Mall and give her a virtual tour of the premises. I’m finally getting used to my Baha® 5 Sound Processor picking up the signal from my phone whenever I start a phone or FaceTime® conversation. In the beginning it surprised me every time, but now it’s just refreshing to know that I can start playing something on my iPhone® without worrying about the sound playing through the speakers and bothering everyone around me. It was great that I did not need to use headphones to FaceTime® with my mom because of this new Bluetooth® Smart technology already built into my Baha 5. It allowed me the freedom to move my phone around and bring objects into the screen without my headphones getting in the way. Ah the simple pleasures…

This has really been an incredible adventure, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I’m saddened to head back home, but I’m also excited to start classes again!

Have a great week,
