Good Burgers, Bad Roads

Fall is in the air in western Massachusetts in the early morning.

Fall is in the air in western Massachusetts in the early morning.

Finally almost two weeks of vacation. Not the ideal time, since life after summer has started everywhere already, so I am missing a couple of meetings and other events, but still, it is worth it. This time we are overseas, at the moment in Washington, D.C., where a friend of ours got married on Saturday. A welcome occasion for a visit to the US capital, and later a visit of friends in New England.

When we arrived in Boston on Wednesday night, temperature wise it felt like summer, with temperatures beyond 30 degrees, which we have not seen in Germany for a while. But still, fall is here, the leaves are changing color, fog on the fields in the morning, and foliage season is just around the corner.

We also took the chance to visit D.C., stroll along the National Mall, and eat a damn good burger at the Presidents favorite burger joint (allegedly).  At the evening drive through the city to see the beautifully illuminated monuments, our car, prompted by one pothole too many, decided however to throw one of its hubcaps in the direction of said Presidents house, right at the corner of Pennsylvania and 17th. I went once around the block, and much to the entertainment of the police and U.S. Secret Service, my wife jumped out to recover our hubcap. Loss damage waver for the rental car is nice, but of course it is preferable to bring everything back in one piece…

Fantastic weather in DC...
