Day Trip to Alexandria

Am just back after having had dinner and French conversation with a couple of Martin’s friends. They meet up once a week just to speak French together, and this time I was invited. I have to say that my French sucks right now. I tried to take part in the conversation but my vocabulary was completely lost. I think that what I really need is two weeks in France! Or on a French speaking island in the West Indies perhaps…

But no vacation plans for now. I have several trips coming up within the next months, so getting on a flight doesn’t seem so tempting right now. But there are things to see around here too. Last Saturday, Martin and I went over to Old Town Alexandria – a small town located a little further down the Potomac River. It was my first time there and I thought it was a lovely little town – like taken out of a 19:th century story book. While there, we discovered that there are boats going between Georgetown and Alexandria, so we took the boat back to DC. Think I will do that trip again soon!
