... while we flatter ourselves that things remain the same, they are changing under our very eyes from year to year, from day to day.
We went up to the heart of Washington DC to take a look at the house and the neighborhood where Melli was born into. It was a good feeling to see that her old house was still there . It is a quaint little neighborhood, in huge contrast with the surrounding business and shopping areas like Bloomingdales to name one. Even the cracks in the sidewalk are still there after all those years!
This is probably not going to be there much longer, that's why I am so happy she took me there and that I was able to take pictures there.
On our way over to the Italian restaurant where we had lunch a little bit later on, we saw this unique bug. I'm really rather curious what kind of bug this is, but to me he looks like his species have been around like for a million years! If the story I heard is correct, he is a stink bug. He has managed to survive instead of going extinct because nobody has the desire to kill this guy.
Because if you do, he will stink so much, you' ll probably remember him forever! LOL!!
Today is going to be a very busy day for me, because I will be saying goodbye to Melli and her family, travel to the west coast and meet other friends. I have warm memories and feelings for them, they really really wore themselves out to make my visit something I will never ever forget. I carry them in my heart. Saying goodbye to them is really going to be hard ...
Time to get my stuff together now!
