on Fridays, we have class all day from like 8-4 or so. "class" includes 2 or 3 "briefers," or speakers from the DC area who have something neat to share with us. after class, a few of us went down to the waterfront, where I plan to spend a lot of time.
also, my camera is super unreliable and often takes pictures with very light in them. so when I get them into iPhoto I enhance them, and some of them turn into this vintage looking photo. kind of cool, but still wish I had a reliable camera! I guess I'm planning on getting one soon. but for the mean time, here are some photos.
after the waterfront, we met up with a few others to go to Alexandria, VA--just a few metro stops away. it's a beautiful little town and King Street in Alexandria is an intern favorite, complete with old-time shops and restaurants, up-scale shopping and sometimes street performers. we ate at a Moroccan restaurant called "Casa Blanca" (go figure) for a pretty little penny. there was even a belly dancer which was fun. after Casa Blanca we went walking along and found a great crystal-glass player.
it was a lovely day.
