I have arrived in Washington, DC in one piece with all of my luggage. My friend M met me at the Dupont Circle metro station. I am stashing my luggage at her office until she is done, then we are heading back to her house, where I’m staying until I find a permanent place to live.
While I’m waiting, I’m hanging out at the Starbucks at Connecticut Ave and K St. This is the place to be in the afternoon - development workers, students and all kinds of professionals are here for their caffine kick. I’ve already met a woman who is going to University of Denver’s Korbel School this fall and another woman who just started a non profit. The non profit woman invited me to a communications meeting with a number of other directors this evening. I was not prepared for instant networking - I don’t have any business cards or copies of my resume printed!
A man just came in and announced that Spain won the soccer game. This will be an interesting World Cup final match!
