Just arrived here in Washington, D.C.

I’m writing this from my hotel room at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill. A few minutes ago, a small rally passed by the hotel. I had to look out the window to find out what the noise was about. I wasn’t sure what the rally was about but they had signs with “Apartheid” and “DIVE$T” on them. I wasn’t sure if that was the entire group, or it was just another group that was marching to join a bigger rally, because I can still hear some chanting coming from somewhere after they passed by. A quick search on Google (Google is my friend.) brought me to this site. Apparently, the rally is part of a campaign to end “Israeli occupation”.

Small rally from my hotel window

I got to the hotel around 2:15 p.m., after I took the Metro Red Line from Bethesda Station to Union Station. Bethesda is one of the two new stops of Vamoose, after they were displaced from their previous stops at Tenleytown and at McPherson Square. More on that in another post.

Tickets

It was also my first time to use the SmarTrip card offered by the WMATA. I ordered it online in advance and had it mailed to New York.

And, by the way, I’m here to attend ISEC 2007.
