On the way to Washington, we stopped off at some outlet malls for a bit of t-shirt swapping (wearing two t-shirts over and over can really wear on a woman’s soul). We were hungry and Yelp’d our way to Grumpy’s Handcarved Sandwiches. Oh my goodness. Just go look at some of those photos. There was so much turkey in our sandwich, it was almost hard to eat (though we did get really sleepy afterwards). Despite that, it was well worth our 5 mile detour for that experience!
Graham and I are both not into politics, so seeing DC was more for the giant structures than the history. Though, in hindsight, a walking tour would have been beneficial as it would have been nice to know something about each pretty building that we saw.
One of my LSHTM friends lives in DC, so we got together for lunch at Cuba Libre before she jetted off to Geneva to help the Ebola response!
At Gravelly Point Park, you can watch planes fly LITERALLY over your head and land at the airport. What a cool experience!
We were also about to watch the Antares Rocket launch from this amazing spot, but it was postponed until the next day due to a ship in the area.
We stayed at A+B’s, Graham’s friends, just outside of DC in Dunkirk, Maryland. Anytime B made food (he is a fantastic cook), you would find us like this:
A has a cool hobby… she rescues sugar gliders!
And with these two cute pups, it was a full house (not to mention they were sitting for a black lab at the time, too):
Thanks for the oasis away from home, A+B!
