I’m sure it’s no surprise that there is no time to devote to a real blog at this moment (it’s been a nonstop whirlwind here in DC for the Rally to Restore Sanity) but I wanted to upload a few pics from yesterday before I leave in a few minutes on the shuttle into town.
Our hotel is WAAAAAAY further away from the city than I expected (wouldn’t you think an airport called Washington Dulles would be at least NEAR Washington?). We have to take an hour long bus trip just to get to town, so we have to leave very early in order to get there in time for the noon rally. They are expecting about 300,000 people. Wow!
The people we met yesterday were amazing. Seems everyone we saw was in town for this thing and the mood is lighthearted and fun. We’re wearing our rally t-shirts, and so are they, and it’s a huge party. Anyhoo, I have to get moving, but here at the pics from yesterday with mini commentary:
At the airport. Looks like that game Don’t Break the Ice, doesn’t it?
The incredibly packed bus into DC.
It was super cold yesterday. One girl even changed out of her flip flops into her neato shoes on the bus. I had to take a pic of her shoe, cuz it’s so cute. Sorry it’s so blurry.
These huge helicopters kept flying up and down the city. Yes, that’s the Washington Monument in the background.
The Jefferson Memorial … nice view from my friend Clark’s hotel.
Jeff pretends to be about to eat squid from our new friend Tracy’s plate. Please note I said PRETENDS. That’s as close as it got.
These folks have to be at the rally site at 6AM because they’re volunteering. LOVE her hat!
These two represent the Keep Fear Alive faction.
Whoops! Gotta go. More later!
