ABD – Day 5 – Dallas to Washington

Posted: February 19, 2016 in Travel

Final morning in Dallas all went smoothly but by time I got to airport I felt like an overworked Mohel with all the tipping I did! Check in was smooth and thought would see if my Qantas Club card got me into AA Admirals club – and it did. On way to said lounge did pass the Dallas Cowboys Bar and all its bright lights were somewhat enticing. Still can’t drink on empty stomach though eh so did go to club for some porridge and a change of incontinence pad with the other dullards. Before long though was drawn back to the lights …..

Boarding was smooth as well and we left on time and after a mere two and a bit hours landed at Ronald Reagan Aitport on an overcast and coolish day . While initially planning to use Metro didn’t feel like the hassle after sitting in plane and with a quote of only $15 for taxi why not. Got into house fine and all unpacked before going for a walk to unwind. Of course as usual the house had its thermonuclear heater on full blast – do these people walk around naked or something?? This did mean that I did wander out a bit under done in the clothing department . It was 3 pm and a brisk 5 degrees outside but walking quickly would help. It is the Capitol area near the Supreme Court and the streets were crowded . Had news leaked of my pending arrival ? Ah no that’s right the body of Justice Sciala was lying ” in state” today at the court.

I do need to stop walking around with a cheery disposition though as it encourages people to engage . Apparently. So am minding my own business looking at all the scaffolding on the Capitol when this clown walks up to me and says
” Do you know you look like Lee Marvin” . ” I am Lee Marvin . I faked my death. Now fuck off before I go all Liberty Valance on your ass ” Geez now I know how hard it is for Brad Pitt to walk the streets . Speaking of which time for some FaceTime with my Angelina. She must be gagging for it by now .

After that will need to plan the next few days as having seen Washington before need to dig a bit deeper beneath the surface to get most out of second visit.

Or at least line up a varied list of pubs to try
