As in Washington DC, capital of the United States.

I’m here for ShmooCon 2012 – an annual East-coast hacker convention.
It’s held here where I’m also staying, the Washington Hilton. It smells really good here, like they mix the air with flowers.
Here’s some interesting history of the hotel:
Read about it here.
There’s a few conferences going on at the same time, look:
Ought to make for some great people-watching outside the hotel.
I landed last night, checked in, ate dinner, and then did laundry.
Being on the road for 2 weeks straight makes you have no socks.
Travel tip: if you need to do laundry on the road: look for a medium-level hotel; they’ll have machines. The higher end hotels will charge you to do it, plus this way is faster and more efficient.
I’m still having serious internet connections problems. This not having internet on my phone is tough.
I should be able to get that fixed earlier next week, on it.
TTYL, have a great Friday afternoon!
