Bush Twins

Okay, well quite a start to my first visit to Washington DC. Flights generally went okay, and was lucky not to have anyone next to me on all three flights.

Checked into hotel and did quick download of e-mail. Kevin (ex-flatmate now working on Martinez for Senate campaign) and chatted online briefly and Kevin joked that I should try to meet the Bush Twins (actually Kevin also suggested other activites also, not suitable for a family publication), knowing my admiration of them.

forgot to take with me my plug adaptor, so asked the hotel where could get some. They said there was a CVS store three blocks down Pennsylvania Avenue.

So head down to the CVS store (think Star Mart), and almost next to the CVS store is a restaurant, La Chaumiere, with around a dozen Secret Service agents outside, and what looked to be Barbara and Jenna Bush inside, as I walked past.

kicked myself for not having my camera with me, and thought about going back to the hotel to grab it and to grab a photo when they left, but I also thought about the well armed secret service agents, and decided I didn’t really want to hang around.

grabbed a photo of the restaurant the next day, and discovered via Google that it is a popular eating place with President Bush, Julia Child and Karl Rove all known to frequent it.

The Washington Suites Hotel Georgetown is extremely nice, and can recommend it to anyone. Not sure how much it costs, but the rooms have a large living area, a full kitchen, a large double bedroom with ensuite and hey Nintendo one one of the two TVs.

This is a photo of some of the main living room. As said, very comfortable.
