D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser – Big Bus Tour in Washington D.C. for IPW Media – Silvija Travel Tips

“Big Bus Tours” yra didžiausias pasaulio atvirųjų autobusų ekskursijų organizatorius, teikiantis pažintines keliones 19 miestuose trijuose žemynuose.  Viešėdama Vašingtone, DC, kaip IPW 2017 dalyvė, pasirinkau kelionę ” Big Bus” autobusu pažinčiai su šiuo ypatingu miestu. Kadangi tai yra geriausias būdas pamatyti Vašingtoną, atsipalaidavusi ir dairydamasi į šalis stebėjau įžymias vietas, dėl kurių Amerikos sostinė tokia atpažįstama ir ypatinga. O išsamūs gido pasakojimai dar labiau praturtino mano pažintį su Vašingtonu. Ir man labai pasisekė! Susipažinus su miesto įžymybėmis ir autobusui stabtelėjus ties Vašingtono paminklu, kitą kelionės dalį kaip gidė pratęsė Vašingtono DC merė Muriel Bowser. Big Bus prisipildė apsaugos, daugybės kamerų, žurnalistų. Visi norėjome pamatyti ir pasiklausyti miesto merės pasakojimo. Prieš tapdama Vašington DC mere, Muriel Bowser buvo ekskursijų vadovė. Jos išsamūs pasakojimai apie Vašington DC, autobusu keliaujant per šio didžiojo miesto istoriją nepaliko abejingų.Pravažiavome pro Baltuosius rūmus, Vašingtono paminklą, Nacionalinį prekybos centrą, istorinį Džordžtauną, Arlingtono nacionalines kapines ir dar daugybę žymių vietų . Tikrai kelionė buvo ypatinga.
