The trip to DC was pretty smooth with nothing unusual to report (not even a Korean soap opera...). When I made it to DC, I decided to wait in the McPherson square until Eli finished up at work. After being asked three times if I was homeless, I moved to a Starbucks. However, the people inquiring only started requesting money after I said I wasn't homeless, so I seemed to have discovered a good way to rebuff panhandlers.
Anyway, after dropping my stuff at Eli's awesome apartment, I went out with Eli and Lyndsay for some good Thai food, I was walking back and had just gone into the building when I heard someone calling "Ben" and a banging on the door. I looked around, and there was Wendy and one of Bob's former advisees Iman! So funny...I had just said bye to Wendy about a week ago after seeing a presentation on raw milk. We talked for a bit...she's in town for a public health conference...and then parted ways. Who knows, maybe I'll run into her again in Egypt!
That's all for now. I'm off to enjoy the DC sunshine and check out some museums...
