It started with a drive to the Orlando airport. We parked in the close in B lot this time to try something different. Our late Airtran flight to DC Reagan airport was on time. Got a seat with a (real) window this time. There were some chatty girls in the seats behind us that just met. Thankfully I had my Bose noise cancelling headphones. I could tell you their life story from the little I heard. I think they will be best friends forever... The approach to the airport from the north put us on the side that had the National Mall view. We decided to take the cab this time since the hotel was close and it was late and the walk from A terminal to the metro is about 20 minutes. The cab only took 15 minutes and less than $20, good choice!! Since it was only 11pm when we arrived, we decide to walk around my old neighborhood. Alot of new development since I was here. We found that an old bar I use to watch the NFL games was open, called Summer's. We had a few drinks and spinach dip, then called it a night for our early start in the morning.
