Arx Hereticus

Welcome to the ramblings of a merry heretic, an ex-pat (Tex-pat?) American living in Maryland after having spent six years in Germany. Arx Hereticus is part travelogue, part cooking, part budo, part socio-political commentary and mostly just me BSing.

Gordons in Maryland

Heya all,

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.

More soon,

Hugs, koshis, etc.

Dude and Dudette,

I'm happy you're almost in reach. Maryland I can get to, and its not hard for you to get to Glenwood. Not like crossing the puddle. Ditto what Janet said. (Hi Janet)Send contact info my direction.
