We saw a part of the city we did not see last year when we took the metro and stayed near the capitol and monuments. Our drive took us through charming streets that were nevertheless confined, tight, and traffic packed. We drove down Pennsylvania Avenue, back behind the Library of Congress and Supreme Court, and into residential neighborhoods.
The rehearsal went well. I was able to fellowship with my cousin Christal and her husband Andrew among others and meet members of the bride's family and friends. The evening was joyful, and the food was delicious (I had salmon)!
