31 August - Washington DC
Not much to report today. We stayed in our apartment till lunch unable to find something else we wanted to do enough to brave the heat outside for. At lunchtime we walked to the local Walmart to get a few essentials we were running low on and got some lunch to bring back while we were out.
We did a bit of planning during the day for New York, looking at how we would get around and what we wanted to see and do. With a bit of help from Google we located an Irish Pub with a Happy Hour not far from here so we wandered down for a drink around 5pm. The wine was average and the food menu was not appealing so we returned to a Thai Restaurant we passed on our way that was also advertising half price drinks, if you ordered a meal.
We ordered different red wines and browsed the menu. Both wines were spoiled. I expect that the bottles had been left open for several days and were well past their best. We called the waitress over and explained and she replaced them with wine from new bottles and they were fine. The food was great but neither of us were able to finish our meals.
We returned to our room and started packing for tomorrow's train trip to New York,. That will be our last stop before we return home. The pictures show our living room and Kitchen and are views from our 14th floor balcony.
