June 28-30, 2013, Christie's Arrival Weekend

Christie Victoria Vernon (CVV) arrived at Dulles Airport (IAD) Friday night on time. She was characteristically full of energy and enthusiasm. Her travel from Bucharest via Heathrow to IAD as an unaccompanied minor went smoothly, and the British Air staff were competent and pleasant. She was proud of being the youngest one in the group. Travel is obviously her milieu. We enjoyed a relatively quiet weekend, expecting that she would be jet-lagged, though she didn't show any signs of it!

Saturday we rode around the monuments so she could get her bearings, followed by lunch at the well-known Old Ebbitt Grill on 15th St. near the White House. Sunday she and I took the X2 bus down to the Smithsonian's Portrait Gallery and Museum of American Art  at 8th and F Streets, NW.

CVV loves the Washington Post, esp. the comics.
