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.
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.
