My friend Cora is here in D.C. for a quick visit. It was one of those spontaneous ideas that started out as a joke and became a reality. The night before my husband and I left we were talking about her coming to Germany with us in a suitcase. And somehow we made plans for her to come hang out in D.C. It's given me the excuse to go sight-see. Touring is not quite as fun without someone, and my husband has been working.
She has never been here before, so yesterday we saw the Iwo Jima Memorial, the changing of the guard at Arlington, and the Jefferson Memorial. I think we are headed to Mount Vernon today.
Still don't know when we are leaving for Germany. I'll keep everyone posted!
