and so I’m back

Yes, I’m back in the land of cricket and warm beer.

I had a wonderful time on holiday, thanks to everyone who gave suggestions on what to do in DC. I tried Ethiopian food at Zed’s in Georgetown (thanks cleverdude), rode the escalators at Rosslyn (thanksĀ  glblguy), sampled many of the Smithsonian museums, trekked out to Alexandria, which I thought was very pretty (thanks, bouncing betty) and had a burrito from Chipotle, which has got to be the best fast food I’ve ever eaten (thanks mrs. micah).

Of course, one of the highlights of my trip was meeting mrs. micah, cleverdude and mapgirl for noodles in Chinatown. We had a very frugal dinner ($7 each including tax and tip) and then a quick drink afterwards. I also got the handbag that I’d commissioned from mrs. micah, and it’s very pretty.

I can confirm that mrs. micah did indeed lose misplace her debit card, cleverdude maintains the story that he lives by nick from punny money and that mapgirl made no attempt to persuade me to drink Yuengling, I chose it all by myself.

Whilst I was over in the US, I took advantage of the weak dollar by purchasing some personal finance books, which you can’t easily get over here. I will attempt to write reviews on them at some point.
