Farewell Washington (for now)

Another back-dated post - my apologies to posterity.

May 27 was my last day living in DC. I had decided a few months ago that I would spend my summer before going to Italy in sunny San Diego. The reasoning was that my internship with UNHCR ended at the end of May and I had 5 west coast weddings and a graduation this summer. Rather than fly back and forth from DC, I decided to just stay in San Diego and save some plane flight money.

I finished up at UNHCR (I will miss them all extremely) said my goodbyes to the United Friends and got on a plane, flying out of DC with a lot less luggage and a lot more experience than when I flew in last August. Thanks DC. It was a great time, but I won't say goodbye because I'll be back in August for pre-term classes and back again in 2011 for my second year at SAIS.

So, until then DC, au revior!
