Pit Stop in the Capital of the US-of-A

Tomorrow, John Tanzella (our Executive Director) and I hope on a flight and venture down to South Africa. The trip is for IGLTA business development and we are incredibly excited. We are flying on South African Airways out of Dulles, so I thought I would spend the evening before in Washington, DC - my former home. This city really is spectacular and it was a beautiful day. I met up with a good friend, Laurel Fehrenbach who works putting on Public Programming for the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery. We caught up on each other's lives and she told me about a great program happening on February 14th called Presidential Family Fun Day that will include 5,000 cupcakes arranged in the likenesses of George Washington and Barack Obama. I swear, only in DC! It was a great afternoon pit stop before venturing on down to Sun City and Cape Town tomorrow. Stay tuned for more information about that trip!
