It’s been a great week and a lovely vacation. In retrospect, I might do a few things differently. A few things I’ve learned, some the easy way and some the hard way:
- Choose your traveling companion(s) well. I did, and it made for a delightful time (even when I couldn’t talk and poor Sarah entertained me with FB updates as we drove to DC at 2am, when I made wrong turns, when Sher let me drive, and when decisions had to be made in general).
- Drivers in DC honk…a lot. Resist the urge to get offended if you are so inclined, realize that they offer no mercy for out-of-towners, acknowledge that you may have done something wrong, and move on.
- A GPS system is wonderful in a new city! Up the fun factor by choosing an accent for “whoever” is giving your verbal directions.
More to come…time to board the plane!
