Back in the bus to NYC.
It was a wonderful little weekend. Started as most of Hubski woulf have expected : the bus was late. So late that the next bus arrived before mine. I don't understand how that's physically possible. I was supposed to go at 11:59pm, next bus was at 1:30 am so I jumped on that one even if I had to do one extra stop at Philadelphia because Megabus wasn't able to tell me when my bus was supposed to arrive. The guy next to me had a flight to catch at 7am in DC. We were supposed to be there at 4:15 am, we arrived at 7.
Good news: they said they were going to compensate us. But don't know when or how that's going to happen.
First things first in DC, after a bit of sightseeing near the Capitol I went to take a breakfast with wasoxygen and we talked for a long time about a lot of different topics, it was awesome and got some new perspectives on some ideas. We didn't picture the moment though but it did happen!
After that, it was already around 10:30 so I went directly to the Air & Space Museum. It was family day and they had some events. I saw an Astronaut (forgot his name) speak about joining NASA : 18 000 applicants, 14 spots. I saw a lot of different things, there was the real Wright Brothers first plane, that was great.
Then I went to see the Washington Monument and the White House. Spend a lot of time there, there were people chanting together and that was nice. A storm was coming around 6pm so I decided to walk from the Mall to Meriadoc's place (50mins). Spend dinner and the night there, they had a Burlesque show going on and that was the first time I saw one, it was quite fun. Their beers are wonderful. arguewithatree and Meriadoc were really nice.
I tried to wake up early on day 2 (7:30), to get to the Mall. There, I did the rest of it (went up the Washington Monument, there were no places left the day before), World War II, Vietnam, Korea, Einstein, Roosevelt and Jefferso Memorial.
Kind of tired after all that as it was really hot so I ate late and chilled a bit before going on the bus back to NYC.
I have some nice photos that I will share when I take the time to do it.
Overall amazing experiece, would meet Hubski again. You have created a great community.
