Well, my adventure here is just about over. Tomorrow morning I hop on the train to Philly to get a slightly late start on classes.
This evening we had a gala at the Air and Space Museum. This was not one of the official galas, so Obama did not come. However, he did stop by my hotel because the Youth Gala was happening there. Unfortunately, I did not have tickets to that one, nor did I see the president in person.
I’m looking forward to getting back to a setting that is quite a few people short of three million people. You can check out satellite photos of the crowds on the National Mall. The things that look like ants are swarms of people. Visit http://www.buzzfeed.com/scott/the-inauguration-from-space (thank you Fran, for the link!).
Well, many thanks for taking some time to come along to DC with me, virtually. See you around campus!
