Washington DC

After almost four months on the road, we planned a return to the US for what we like to call “Intermission.”  My father was having knee replacement surgery and we had several celebrations of family and friends that were coincidentally around the same time on the east coast. Departing from Jordan, Adam continued his travels to Georgia (the country not the US state!) and Armenia while I flew to Virginia where my parents and brothers live.

Two weeks after the surgery, Adam returned to the US via Washington DC.  After a crazy three days of traveling (Yerevan -> Tbilisi -> Baku -> London -> DC), he was exhausted and a bit sick but we were both ecstatic to see each other at the airport. We feel lucky to be travel partners, as after being together for extended travel, we still missed each other so much during our brief time apart. Needless to say, we had a very happy reunion. Over the next few days, we enjoyed seeing close family friends, the Henneys and Charmaine, whom I had grown up with an now lived in northern Virginia.

Happy reunions continued with friends in town for the wedding of a friend from college.  It was great to spend time with my best friends Amanda May and Brandy, her husband Greg and adorable daughter Clarke.  The weekend also proved to be a mini-reunion of my alma mater, Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!), for the attendees of Guggan and Anisha’s wedding.  It was a huge, lavish Indian wedding.  Adam donned kurtya pajamas and I wore a turquoise Indian pantsuit, both of which we had picked up while visiting Guggan’s sister Puja in Dubai.  With most of the guests sharply dressed in colorful Indian attire, the day began with Guggan riding in on a horse, a morning ceremony, lunch, cocktail hour, dinner, a surprise dance with the entire bridal party and drinks and dancing until the wee hours. Adam and I had a blast but had a rough drive back to Virginia Beach the next morning.
