We found morning. In Frederick County, Maryland. I actually managed to get some sleep on the bus, and due to the many contortions that it took, am relieved to report I can forgo my Yoga practice for the remainder of the week.
And I even do the hot Yoga, so it was useful that the air-conditioning broke on the bus. Thankfully, it was fixed at this last stop. If I had to guess, a mechanic came out and cleaned the canon plug . (That one was for my airline friends.)
We’ll be arriving in DC soon, where we’ll have breakfast and then start our sightseeing. Unfortunately, hotel check-in won’t happen until tonight. As you can imagine, I’m very much looking forward to that shower, but for now am simply grateful I was able to retrieve my toothbrush from the luggage bin under the bus. Pretty sure everyone within five feet of me is grateful, too.
Even though I’ve been to Washington many times, I’m looking forward to the tour. There’s a lot of stuff there I haven’t seen. As embarrassing as it is to admit, I’ve never been to the Smithsonian, or the Capitol. I’ve never been to a turtle race either, and so, if Congress happens to be in session, am thinking I might be able to knock two things off the bucket list.
