After a wonderful day and night yesterday, today is about decompressing. There will be no crowd of 200,000 to join today.
We get to meet Sandra again for lunch, and she has chosen a place near our hotel that has a chocolate theme. Those of you that are loyal Wasters should know that we ate at a chocolate themed restaurant in Rome this summer that was mindblowing. I will link to that after this meal.
Sandra arrived and we took our seat at a table. When you read a menu like the menu at Co Co Sala, the intelligent reaction is to ask for, "One of everything." Sadly, we did not do this, which means that Citrus Ricotta Pancakes with white chocolate lemon cream and Cinnamon Brioche French Toast stuffed with house-made marshmallow, dark chocolate and graham shortbread will not be appearing on the Waste. Good Lord.
Of course we ordered dessert. Are you crazy?
Okay. Sandra definitely outdid herself with that place. We were sorry to say good-bye, but we needed to get going and Sandra actually needed to get to work in a few hours.
Next on the agenda is a visit with Barbie's family. Her favorite Aunt and her family lives here, across the Maryland border in Bethesda. I had gotten to meet them only once before, and we had a very nice visit. One thing that you should note about Barbie's travel arrangements, we often hit many birds with just one stone.
On the way back to the hotel, driving around Georgetown on Halloween, not through it, we passed the Washington National Cathedral.
After getting back to the hotel, it was time to pack and order some room service.
Tomorrow, we fly to New York City, better known as Barbie's second home.
Oops! I almost forgot. Chocoholics can now look at this summer's turbo-charged chocolate experience in Rome. Just scroll down to dinner, which you be able to spot by all the dang chocolate.
