TripAdvisor Reviews AKA Virginia Square Arlington
Travel Blogs from Arlington
This morning we woke up at about 8 o'clock, ate some breakfast, and walked from the Britain Embassy to the Japan Embassy. The walk was rather short, it was about half a mile. The walk was somewhat calm and peaceful there are many luscious trees between the embassies.
Since we've been at the embassy we have gotten the opportunity to learn some interesting things about Japan. Such as:
... Kudu and Impala in Namibia; Ayam Buah Keluak (poisonous mangrove seeds fermented for 40 days underground) in Malaysia.
And finally, some stats from the trip
10 rental cars
9 soccer games
8 servings of nachos
4 cats waiting for us at home
... which was the antithesis of last night. This was an area with a largely black population and we stood out like sore thumbs. The area was obviously a much lower socio economic region but it had a Subway - our fall back lunch when we cannot find anything else. Staff in the store were very helpful and even upgraded our order which gave us the cheaper Friday special price which we had not seen.
Back to the hotel after lunch for a rest. ...
... with Nick and Maura. They live in a really nice neighbourhood and we were immediately taken up onto the roof of the apartment block for some impressive sunset views across DC. Maura then cooked a tasty chicken dinner for us and we shared a fair amount of wine while the stories both old and new were in full flow. I'm really happy to finally be here, it's just a shame we haven't seen each other for so long but I'm sure we can make up for it. ...
... I will be a part of this summer. These include:
- Participating in cultural activities like (possibly):
- martial arts
- folk dance
- folk songs
- Chinese calligraphy
- Chinese painting
- Chinese cooking/cuisine
- Touring the new and old cities of Shanghai
- Visiting the Great Wall and the Forbidden City museum
- Watching Chinese acrobatics and opera
