20 July 2015 | Wash DC
Hoku and I spent a few days visiting DC. Two of my sisters now reside in DC which is a terrific city to visit. Most all the museums are free, there are great restaurants not to mention its our nations capitol. One of my sisters who started at the Naval Academy has worked her way up in "intelligence" to having recently been given the job of briefing senators on such "intelligence", I keep bugging her about the UFO thing but she won't relinquish! Instead she arranged a behind the scenes tour of the capitol building. After a nice lunch in the senate cafeteria, which is actually not in the senate but in a building next door we rode the senate subway and proceeded to tour the building. But not before passing the senate hair salon, the senate gift shop, the senate health clinic and several senate coffee shops. The capitol dome is undergoing extensive repairs which are on schedule to be completed for the next inauguration.
I'm currently in New Jersey working on my mothers house and plan on returning to the mts. of Maine by the end of the week. Our Cuba plans have been progressing with permission now granted from the US Treasury Office of Foreign Assets (OFAC), now just waiting on permission from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), in addition to the two acronyms above are dozens more which I've become accustom to during the process.
