Changing course

With friends at Old Town Alexandria

You’ve probably heard about the backlog of passports – this week, we were recruited to help. John will start his passport training this morning, and I’ll start mine next Monday. After four days of training, we’ll be adjudicating passports until August 31st which will delay our arrival in Juarez a little bit.

On Saturday, one of our favorite people, Sarah (sitting next to me in the photo above), took us to Old Town Alexandria. We did a self-guided walking tour, stopping for lunch and libations along the way. It’s a neat place to go, on the waterfront with lots of shops, restaurants, and historic places. Afterwards, we dropped in on a going away party for our neighbors who are headed to Conakry, Guinea.

We had a fun happy hour on Thursday where we celebrated the marriage of one of our classmates, followed by a great Turkish dinner at Attilla’s.

We spent the 4th at home, not wanting to fight the crowds (and the rains) on the Mall. Instead we cooked out with some friends and just took it easy.

Here’s a great shot of John with DPAS Kathleen Stephens on Flag Day!
