Ah Saturday, a day for sleeping in, watching cartoons, and eating pancakes. Or a day for an early wake-up and a 3-hour bus ride to Washington DC. Today was the latter, although we did watch The Incredibles on the bus.
The girls of our cohort decided we did not have enough time or energy to walk down to M street, the main shopping and dining area about a mile away from campus. Instead, we explored the campus and the surrounding area. We decided to grab a bite to eat at Tomb's Restaurant, apparently a popular spot for Georgetown students. My falafel and berry shortcake were very good, but the conversation was even better. Since starting our classes, the five of us haven't really had time to get together and hang out. I love how close we have gotten and I know we will be life-long friends. I've met some amazing people on this trip, but it was great to take a moment and bond with amazing people I came with.
