around the world – part 34.1 (virginia)

22 Feb 2009: 

captiolHere we go again, not so much around the world as exploring a nearby neighbourhood.   This last week found junior and a colleague in suburban DC, holding down the fort (and at times a bar stool) at the Westfields Marriott.  Mostly painful meetings, however not without opportunity to explore DC a little.  The last time I was in this part of the world was a lifetime ago as a high school student burdened with the ‘too cool’ ennui that likely prevented me from enjoying the experience. 

Cool visitor tip – The Canadian embassy occupies a prime location on Pennsylvania Avenue (accessed by vehicle from C street) and they allowed us to park our rental car on site while we wandered around the mall for several hours – your tax dollars at work!
