The adventure has begun.
I arrived in DC on Thursday, July 26th 2007 a day and half early to my orientation before Germany. Time to hang out in the city, visit some friends and be a tourist. Cruised around the mall and the main tourist places on most of Friday, meeting up with another participant in my program to Germany, before heading out to a jungle/hunting bar in Dupont Circle with lots of huge teeth on the walls and beer from Oregon. A jolly good time.
Saturday, I went rock climbing with some friends at a nearby gym. Then on to Georgetown to to meet the 74 other participants going to Germany with me for the year. Some good people from all over the country.
Sunday we took a group photo down at the capital, and explored some more capitals after an info session on the program by the German director.
