DC Trip

Friends and I are travelling in Washington DC prior to the upcoming Grace Hopper Conference.  We arrived yesterday for a delicious Ethiopian meal.  Our enjoyment was tempered only by the realization that smoking on restaurants is not prohibited here. :(

Today we enjoyed several Smithsonians, saw the White House from both angles (including its kitchen garden and lone beehive), the Washington Monument and the Post Office Tower.  We also stopped by the Washington DC Turkish Festival for the most delicious Turkish-flavoured gelato (honey & fig and turkish coffee).  Miranda also shared some delicious baklava.

Pictures to come soon!
