On the plane ride to DC we flew over the Potomac river while the man sitting next to me (a native of the DC area) explained to me Maryland's history. He also pointed out several land marks along the way while we were landing.
After arriving in DC we settled into our hotel and ate dinner at the restaurant of our choice. Tomorrow morning we are to be in the hotel lobby with breakfast eaten and ready to to go by 830 am, it should be an interesting day!!
