So, I've been in DC for about three hours already. I thought about walking around a little bit, but I was a little tired when I got here. For those of you with Google Earth, you can find my exact location. I'm at 775 12th street NW. Do you see me waving?
Some people detest driving longer distances. I thrive on it. I had my iPod going and I may have driven a little above the speed limit a few times *smile*. Plus, people may think I'm nuts, but I enjoy big city driving - except for all the one way streets. For those who are not familiar with Washington, DC, there is a huge highway that goes around the city called the beltway.
I'm from a small town, and traffic to me is driving around my town at lunch time where the one main street has cars all over. But, some people would say that the DC beltway is nuts. Cars and trucks everywhere - weaving in and out and across three lanes of traffic. For me, really a good time! Don't worry, I got here safe.
The first thing I had to do was blog about it. I do admit that I felt like quite the loser sitting in the bar virtually by myself having my chicken sandwich and beer. No sympathy, please. This is only night one. There are a lot of good times to come (I hope).
Tomorrow, I'm going to try to visit with some friends that I have here. If that doesn't happen, then I'll walk around the city a bit. I haven't been here since I was a little kid. Right now, instead of getting needed sleep, I'm going to check my e-mail now and read through some of my comments, which I have neglected for the past few days - I'm Dr. A and I'm a blogaholic. Thanks for everybody checking in. I appreciate it!
