      The Big Plane Ride

      with a layover in Washington Dulles and arriving in Orlando at 12:30am. It was a late night but the kids LOVED flying

      ... very ugly streets with metal hardware shops etc that look like they were built in 2 days. There is a little Middle Eastern store run by an Egyptian guy that looks interesting--but it's not very well stocked... I'd never visited the Mechanicsburg Museum, so I guess I'd better do it now.

      I continue on to the fountain where there's a young band playing hard rock music. Not that I don't enjoy hard rock--but it just doesn't seem to go with the vibe here. There are different causes being promoted... church denominations giving out books... the animal shelter... selling baskets to help schoolkids in Ghana...
