I slept like a rock, and rose bright and early. Given directions to the Post Office I arrived there 20 minutes before opening, and the line was already long. While waiting, we heard brakes and a crash. A car had rear-ended a stopped bus at the bus stop. Soon Police, Fire Engine, and Paramedics arrived. The girl driver was apparently not hurt too badly, but the entire front end of the car was crunched underneath the City Bus. Seems to be a fairly exciting place around here.
I picked up a ticket that Hawaii Senator Inouye’s office mailed to me to tour the Capitol, White House and Kennedy Center next week. I’m looking forward to that.
Bev and I then headed out to the Wheaton Metro Station and took the Metro into Dupont Circle to participate in the $35 "Tour of Embassies." It was a fund-raiser but what an interesting walking tour it made. We visited six embassies, including the Madagascar, Croatian, Mauritanian, Danish, Indonesian, and Uzbekistan; also the nearby Textile Museum, and Islamic Mosque.

Home in no time on the Metro. And with a Taco Bell for dinner, this most interesting day was complete.
