It’s been a long winter. Not very hard compared to what I grew up with in Sweden, but long nevertheless. But now it seems like spring is finally on the way. The almond trees are almost blooming and the Cherry Blossom Festival is less than two weeks away. My friend from Moldova has been here on training for almost a week so we spent yesterday walking around the National Mall before she had to leave for her flight. After that, I met up with another colleague for a drink in Georgetown. A very pleasant Saturday!
