Gordons in Maryland
We're on the ground in Maryland, minimally lagged, enjoying the beautiful weather.
Landed last eve about 19:00 at Dulles (the Dullest airport in the world) and were met by my colleague Sarah, who took us home to deposit kitty and luggage and then to dinner at a local brewpub (decent beer and good food!).
Faceplanted shortly afterward and slept well.
We got up today and unpacked, then wandered the neighborhood a bit, bought some groceries and supplies. The landlady came over to offer us a quick and dirty tour of Frederick (totally charming town), which we leapt upon and then to her favorite beer/wine store where we grabbed some alcoholic imbibations.
Em's making phone calls to let folks know we're here safe and sound and we're going to head out again in a bit to find something to eat.
Pleasant spot, all in all, and so far, very friendly folks.
As long as we have to be here, this ain't a bad place to land.
Hugs, koshis, etc.
