I arrived in D.C and made my way to my next hosts house via the metro. John was my new host and he seemed pretty cool and chilled out when I met him. We spent the evening watching tv and had a dominos pizza. John is originally from Ethiopia and moved to the USA when he was a teenager. We didn't do much else, other than welcome another couch surfer who arrived later in the evening, he was from Germany and seemed cool too. When I woke up I headed to the touristy part ...

... everyone again and were off to a brewery pub for dinner and to have a few ales. The beer was good and I had some great quesadillas and BBQ pulled pork. While we were there we spotted our first Amish people who were at a nearby table for dinner. It was hard not to stare but I'm sure they are used to it. After dinner it was back to Cherry Hill Park for a 2nd night. After this we are going to be in a different campsite every night so it was good to have 1 night that we didn't have to set up ...
