I just found these two photos from when my ex and I visited the White House in 1986. We were living in Maryland back then (he was flying for a commuter airline), and it was a very memorable visit to Washington D.C.
I personally felt very proud and patriotic, standing so close to where President Reagan was leading our country… especially when I saw him step into “Marine 1” (the presidential helicopter) and fly right over our heads!
The photos have nothing to do with food or restaurants, but they have a lot to do with celebrating on this Inauguration Day 2009. As an immigrant (see “About”), I feel so very grateful and proud today!
What are you doing to celebrate?
This evening my good friend Afaf and I are going to a cooking class taught by chef Michael Young, then afterwards I’m having a late dinner (and drinks!) with my husband Peter.
Let’s Celebrate America!
