Welcome to Washington DC

Shortly after 11 a.m. today I took off from Indianapolis International Airport and landed at Ronald Reagan National Airport about 12:30 p.m. A short train ride and a three-block walk later, I arrived at the Donovan House hotel. Having not seen it before today, I was actually impressed. It’s quite nice.

Just after getting checked in I took off on a walking journey to see what was in the neighborhood. I ended up near the Department of the Treasury at which point I realized I was really close to the White House. I figured I might as well check out all the touristy places again, so I visited the White House, the Washington Monument, the National Mall, the Capitol Building, the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building, and so on.

On my way back to the hotel I realized I could go ahead to the Convention Center and “pre-check-in” for the CFunited Conference, so I hailed a cab and headed over there. As I left the Convention Center, I realized that I was only a five-block walk from my hotel.

I did a fair amount of walking and my feet were pretty sore, so I scored a couple drinks and made it back to the hotel and am about to call it a night. Tomorrow is day one of CFunited 2008 which should be interesting since I’ve never written a line of ColdFusion code in my life!
