visiting georgetown university (lyn)

It's about a 10-minute walk from our hotel to the university.  We stop along the way at a little coffee shop for breakfast. We both have blueberry muffins.  I figure that next week I'll only eat fruits and steamed vegetables.

Georgetown is impressive although our tour guide is not. It's a freezing grey day and the tour is all outside. When it's over, we don't know what the library looks like inside, what the new state of the art new business school is like, or even where the gym is. We do know that the school is not all wireless and that in the next five or ten years there will be a new student center to replace the quasi-one  that exists now.  We know that Georgetown is an incredible school, but our tour guide does not do a great job of conveying this.  The Banner T-shirt though, is among the best we’ve seen.  I go to buy it but Alexander doesn’t’ want it.  He thinks not having a t-shirt might bring him good luck (he doesn’t have one from the two schools he’s been admitted to:  U Michigan and U Wisconsin).

We grab lunch before boarding the Bolt bus home.  This time I chose wisely and get an amazing chopped salad of romaine lettuce, tomatoes, hearts of palm, shrimp, and avocado with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

The ride home is fine. We both do what we did on the ride down:  Alexander sleeps while I read, write and play Scrabble on my iPhone.
