Dinner and Driving

Tonight we had a really enjoyable evening hanging out with my cousin Laura. She survived dinner at Cafe Asia in the city (where else would we take her?) and then she got the quick night tour of DC, and finally the tour of our home.

Mostly we demonstrate that after 8 years of living here, we still can't drive around DC at night. Even with the GPS we manage to miss every turn and get caught in every traffic circle. You'd think we just moved in last week.

Update: For the record, Shira and Laura were on a conference call to Grandma when I snapped this photo. This wasn't some sort of strange phone modeling thing.


  1. cheers for the Treo

  2. I can't drive in DC in the day or night. I always get lost. Even if I use my GPS and have a friend along who knows the area, I will still end up going all over the place, out of my way, circling back around and weaving through streets till I get lucky and find a way out. I absolutely hate driving in DC (and I've lived in northern VA my whole life)!

    My cousin is a huge fan of her Treo.

    She told us a cute story about how she tried the Motorola Q for a few hours (or days?), and was eager to have her old Treo reactivated.

    I'm delighted to hear that I'm not the only person who just Doesn't Get DC's layout.

    It's like every trip to DC in a car is a new adventure in getting lost.
