I have so many pet peeves about trips like this I can't even go into it.
But mainly it's one thing: learn how to use technology!
All these folks with their smartphones and not one way to use them smartly to navigate the city (i.e., search the metra system, map a route from airport to hotel, look up congressmen, etc.)
This is the first moment I've had to get my thoughts together.
The rest of the day I've been up since 5 am, remotely steering my boss through DC's public transportation system, trying to find my delegation, going on appts and moving the earth behind the scenes to make sure folks have a productive time. Barely ate lunch, gulped down every glass of water on my table and I think my Instead cup flipped over. SIGH.
The last thing I want to do is go to dinner tonight. But I must.
(What would I rather be doing? Sitting in my room, in my pjs, studying for tomorrow and ordering room service.)
The room is very cute, though.
