“People are in the street chanting,” JoAnna Wishon said, describing the scene in Washington. “There’s like a big train in the middle of the crowd. They’re just dancing, and it’s overwhelming, but in a good way. It’s just packed, wall to wall people, people singing. It’s amazing.”

Walton also enjoyed the scene.

“I like all the emotion that everybody has. I love it,” she said. “It’s really cool being able to come here and see all the history and the town and seeing Obama being able to go back in office. Everybody’s happy and cheering.”

Jaimee Wishon put the experience at the top of her list of the most exciting things she’s ever done.

“This is like number one. This is pretty awesome,” she said. “They’re all really happy and everybody is like singing and excited. It’s really cool.”

Though having fun, they all agreed that walking through the large crowd to get around was the toughest part of the trip.

As part of the trip, the group visited the Holocaust Museum and the Smithsonian’s Natural History and American History museums.
