Arrival in Washington, D.C.

I left Shishmaref on Monday night at 6:00pm to head to Washington, D.C. for the first phase of my Fulbright experience.

This is a little picture I took in Kotzebue to illustrate the conditions I left behind. Nice, huh?

I barely made my connection in Anchorage to Salt Lake City. Then I flew to the Washington Reagan Airport, putting me in Washington, D.C. and about 4:00pm on Tuesday. Needless to say, it was a long trip.

I was pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. My suite sported stylish decor...


a king size bed...


a television in the living area... (Note to readers: The pictures are blurry. I have self-identified that problem. I was tired. I'm sorry.)


and a television in the bedroom (Hey Steve! Are you jealous yet?).


Quintuple bonus was the Bliss products in the bathroom. Ahhhhhh... (Bliss is one of my favorite brands of bath and body products.)

This is how I felt about the whole thing. Life as a Fulbrighter is good so far...
