Last weekend was one of the most enjoyable in a long time. My friend K came down for a visit, and I took the opportunity of her company to explore more of D.C. We took a trip to the Eastern Market. I have been trying to find such a market in the area for a long time. (o.k….obviously I haven’t been looking hard have I?) I like a nice mix of food and craft vendors at my markets. My only regret: that I don’t life close enough to take advantage of the fresh food on a regular basis. Afterwards we went to the National Gallery of Art. K is one of the few people I know that would appreciate such an outing. If possible, I like to pick up post cards of the paintings that impressed me during a particular visit.
For dinner, we went to this charming hole-in-the-wall Mexican/El Salvadorian café. The internet is invaluable when it comes to finding good, cheap eats. I reacquainted myself with pupusas—thick, handmade corn tortillas stuffed with meat and cheese. Yumm.
