Not being American I found the Twilight Tattoo very informative and a bit of an insight into American history. It was a good night, entertaining and great to see a lot of students there.

Whenever my husband and I attend a conference in DC every June, we always ensure that Twilight Tattoo is on our agenda. We go with a large group and it is very enjoyable to say the least.
