My weekend away was great, it was so nice to get out of NYC, even though I just went to another city. Bad thing: at the train station before I left I couldn’t find my debit card. I guess I lost it some where because I couldn’t find it any where. Other bad thing: on the train ride down I sat next to some guy who looked like an Amish Crocodile Dundee who not only kept trying to talk to me (I ignored and put my music on louder), but took of his shoes!! His feet SMELLED! I can’t even describe it. And it was a sold out train so I couldn’t move.
So I got to Union Station:
And met my friend and we headed for dinner. I’m sorry for the lack of food pictures, I had planned to take pictures of all my food all weekend, but for some reason I just didn’t feel like myself all weekend. I don’t know if I still felt sick from my dizziness/nausea the days before or if it was the heat and lack of hydration that was an issue but I just felt very odd the entire time. I usually take nonstop pictures anywhere I go so this was odd for me.
The next day we went to the Portrait Gallery, I love the architecture on the 3rd floor:
Then we had lunch at Potbelly and saw a Segway tour:
I just think these things are so stupid. And I’m sorry if anyone loves them, but they’re just silly. And it’s super obnoxious that they’re allowed to ride on the sidewalk. Ok, rant over.
After lunch we headed over to Georgetown to do some shopping. I got some great deals on bras in the Gap, $8.99 each! And they’re my favorite kind.
We talked down to the harbor:
I just love being by the water, there’s something so comforting about it.
Then we noticed the Swedish Embassy. I always make fun of my friend because her ancestors are from Sweden so I had to get a picture of her in front of it:
After that we headed back to Alexandria and relaxed at her house for a while, then went to dinner at this great Italian restaurant.
On Sunday we walked around Alexandria and went to this really cool art gallery called the Torpedo Factory. I’ve actually sold them books which was funny. Then we headed into DC, had some lunch, and it was time for me to go home.
Overall it was a really good weekend. I just wish I had eaten a little better and ben less uncomfortable in the heat, but that’s life.
