Woke up at 6am to take Ricardo to the Metro station – he went back to NY taking my old Peugot mountain bike with him.
Then we went to the airport and loaded up Philip’s plane – a Trinidad – single engine – to go down to Pompano beach.
6 hours later we get to sunny Florida. We went through some spots where the smoke from the fires was so thick that we could not see much ahead, but all in all it was a calm flight. Great to observe and listen all the radio conversations and procedures you go through during a flight. Made me want to get a pilot’s license again… maybe next year – but a glider/sailplane license.

Beautiful city – so green, tons of birds and all the FREE museums! Today went to Capitol Hill, Freer Gallery, Holocaust Museum and the White House.
Quite disturbed by the Holocaust Museum but fantastic exhibit.
Union Station also is gorgeous. Posted some more pictures on the same album below…
First stop – Washington DC – staying with Phillip – gorgeous house. Got here by train from NY and went straight to the Air and Space Museum – the most visited museum in the US!! Then went to see the “required” stops – Capitol Hill, White House, Jefferson and Lincoln Memorial and so on…
Here are some pictures:
Phillip has kindly decided to lend me his hard case for bikes so besides taking my old Peugeout back to NY I will use it to take my Specialized along with me on the Round the World trip I am doing this summer.
Stay tuned for more news!
