T Minus 24 Hours

And I still haven’t packed, which I totally meant to do yesterday. Tomorrow Mom and I are off to DC for a week of, well, touristy stuff and eating. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Washington, and Mom has never been, so I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. My big plans include eating my way through the city, which is a favorite past-time of mine when I travel (side note: I’m SO excited that we’re headed back to San Francisco in a few months…Talk about a foodie town). We’re going to do all the usual stuff like the monuments and the museums, but I’m gonna try to drag her over to Georgetown for a little shopping and more eating. I really don’t think you should miss Georgetown on your first visit, so, even though she’s not that excited about it, I think she’ll have a good time over there.
Other than that, we’re just gonna play it by ear (except for the stuff that I already have advance tickets for. I really didn’t want to wait in line at the Holocaust Museum, so I already got those along with a couple of other things). Most of all? Even though it’s going to be around 100 degrees, I’m REALLY looking forward to a week without rain. We’ve had rain for the last 32 days, and I am desperate to see the sun for a while.

    Well, it’s a week-long Tacos of the World festival here at home, so you have that to look forward to.

    You’re right. I’m definitely looking forward to missing the Tacos of the World Festival. 😉

    I’m jealous. I love DC. You guys are going to have SO MUCH FUN! Getting tickets early for the Holocaust Museum is a really smart idea. Even thought it’s a very difficult museum to experience it is one of my favorites.

    Don’t make the mistake of staying in the Smithsonians for so long that you end up eating at the cafeteria in the American History one. The food is not good and it is SO expensive.

    Are you going to the American Indian Smithsonian? I haven’t been there yet so if you go I want a full report.

    Have I mentioned that I LOVE DC?!
