NY to DC

Christina and I flew into New York and eventually MegaBus'ed our way to DC. It was a very special trip because I got to have some of my favorite friends meet for the first time. It was also Christina's first time to both places. We took our skates, along with a confused wardrobe of bathing suits and sweaters because you how do you really transition from Texas to New York during a transitionary season? It was a great trip. She's my favorite travel partner because we don't ever make tight plans and we're both open to anything that floats our way. 

We skated to Chelsea Piers skatepark, then skated all around Manhattan.

DC was a good time, but not as thrilling as NY.; the energy in Brooklyn feels addictive when I get it in doses. I discovered a few of my new favorite artists in the Washington museums, though, and we had a good visit with our friends Lisa and Rusty.
