My first twenty-four hours in D.C. have certainly been eventful. Let me just say, from what I've seen, this city is absolutely beautiful! I recognize I may be a little biased, seeing as how Stephanie lives in Georgetown. The public transportation, aside from one minor incident (come on, when do I not have minor incidents with weirdos?!), is, surprisingly, very nice.
Last night, we went to see Sixteen Candles in Gateway Park. They had a huge screen set up, and the park was completely full. But it was fun, especially when the crowd would clap and cheer when Sam and Jake finally got together. It kinda reminded me of an outdoor concert, but with a cool movie. :)
I couldn't believe this, but Stephanie hadn't seen Sixteen Candles! Anyway, today we went to the National Gallery of Art. I was in hog heaven, to say the least. I don't mean to name-drop here, but we saw paintings by Monet, van Gogh, Manet, da Vinci, and, my favorite, Cezanne. Pictures to come, once I get back to Greensboro.
Well, now, we're heading out to paint the town- Adams Morgan, to be exact! Hopefully, I'll get to meet some of Stephanie's hip friends! ;D
