This weekend one of my best friends from Stevens came down to DC to visit. She accepted a job offer in the area and I cannot hide how excited I am to introduce her to DC. I was able to show her some of the Georgetown/Dupont Circle neighborhoods, thus, her visit was as much educational as it was recreational.
Luckily, our law school friend at GW was able to show her around while I was in class on Friday. I was tempted to bring them into anatomy lab to show them our dissections, but figured that they could enjoy their time better, elsewhere. They visited Georgetown Cupcakes and saw the Cherry Blossoms at the Jefferson Memorial. Here's one of the pictures they took of the Washington Monument:
We had dinner in Dupont and it was so great to see my friends from NJ and my friends from medical school get along so well. It felt like we were 'young professionals', swapping stories about our weekly escapades (I guess I'm not a 'professional' yet, but I am a very professional student).
