It’s been a fine trip. These business with an extra day at the end trips are odd. They’re not vacations, so you work normal hours for the first three days but you eat dinner in strange places and wake up in hotels. But on your Saturday you try to use your time wisely to see what you want to see.
It was really fun to meet people that I have been talking to on a daily basis for two years! It’s just like meeting someone from the Internet that you’ve become friends with. Speaking of which.
Here you go Nina! One of my coworkers laughed about me posting a picture of my bruised and battered foot on Facebook and I explained I very meanly do it becuase you hate feet. He showed up for dinner with sandals just so I could take pictures of his web toes!
This is what it looks like when you get a bunch of people together who are all technology junkies.
Oh, yeah, that’s how the trip started. The day we left I fell at home. I slipped on a used fabric softener sheet, which on tile, is wicked. I bruised the front of my foot, my ankle, my knee and my hip. Couldn’t wear shoes, got a suitcase dragged across the top of the same foot at the Dallas airport. Poor foot.
Really, the only thing we wanted to see was the 6th Floor Museum and Dealey Plaza. My husband was very interested in it, I was more of a, well I’m in Dallas, I have to see it. We parked at the Dallas Aquarium and then wandered downtown until we ended up in the right place. Feels historical.
Not sure why it turned Yellow!
We decided we should go in the aquarium since we were there, but after 20 minutes in line and being halfway to the entrance we decided no. I can’t imagine how busy the aquarium was inside. We then spent the rest of the day wandering the city, window shopping, eating.
I did not get a good hotel for this part. (I split my time and location so that I could easily pay for the vacation part). Bad location. You know it’s bad when they have signs everywhere warning people not to steal things. Oops. Only surprising when you realize the excess of wealth around here. Amazing.
Off to shower and get a move on.
