East Coast Part V - Goodbye, DC

I finally pulled myself away from NYC, after a comfortable night in the W hotel and a rainy walk to the bus stop somewhere off 10th Avenue.

Hello, old metro stop! This time I stayed at Carol's house, right in my old neighborhood, a stone's throw away from my old house. 

Friday I bummed around the city, maybe had a lunch date (I don't remember?) and awaited the NKOTB concert that evening.  Got behind the scenes at the Verizon Center. I was most excited about the Hoyas locker room.




The man behind all those New Kids photos this summer. What a job.

The NKTOB/98/Boyz II show was quite the spectacle. The people watching was amazing. I thought the bleachers were going to fall down because of all the jumping and dancing and such. Carol and I were amused for a bit, but then headed over to my favorite Zaytinya for a late dinner.

I got up relatively early on Saturday to meet Rob at Eastern Market. I was last there just before the big fire, and I'm so glad it's still running strong. Had to get those blue bucks!  Rob and I meandered through the stalls, Pedgerton stopped by on his bike and said hello, then Rob and I kept our journey going to the Library of Congress and the Capitol.

I love this building. It's spectacular.





And then, it was time to wrap up this wonderful trip! Back to Chinatown to grab my stuff.

One last Rita's before I went! Metro to Tenleytown, Kirsten and Lindsay picked me up, drove me to Dulles, and away to LA.

India: Part 9 - Jaipur

We piled into a big van early in the morning for a five-hour drive to Jaipur. Rest stop for bathrooms and chai. And a camel sighting. Up...
