Since my start date was pushed back, I had another 2 weeks to entertain myself. Well, what better thing to do than jump on another plane? I found a cheap ticket via that well-known name-your-own-price website and headed out to DC to visit grad school friends.
A fantastic friend lent me her couch and toted me around from airport to apartment to city and everywhere in between. Tuesday was spent wandering around Eastern Market, Capitol Hill and the US Botanic Gardens. We then met up with a large group of grad school buddies for a wonderful happy hour. We had wine, chatted about jobs and job searches and just caught up with one another. After which we headed to a friend's apartment "just to see it" and ended up sitting in the kitchen with a glass of wine and chatting away for over 3 hours. We finally left because it was getting close to the last metro train leaving and didn't want to miss our ride out of the city!

It was a short but great trip!
