    • Day 44

      Arlington / Nationals Park

      June 5 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

      Am Mittwoch gingen wir zuerst nach Arlington. Arlington ist bekannt für seinen riesigen Nationalfriedhof mit Gräbern von Kriegsveteranen & dem Grabstein von John F. Kennedy. Aktuell wird er weiter ausgebaut.

      Danach gingen wir zum Navy Yard & erkundeten das Stadtviertel und die Promenade, bevor es dann ins Stadion ging.
      Aufgrund des schlechten Wetters ⛈️verzögerte sich der Spielstart um knapp 1 1/2 Stunden. 🤭 Im Stadion war kaum was los, ein Mittwochnachmittags Spiel halt. Nach etwas über 2h stand es 9:1 für die New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals.

      Beach to Washington

      June 19, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 24 °C

      Wieder mal fasse ich hier 2 Tage zusammen.

      Gestern haben wir uns wieder einen eher gemütlichen Tag am Strand gemacht. Dieses mal sind wir jedoch eine Stunde dafür gefahren, da es dort wo wir hinfuhren besonders schön ist. Dies war es auch. Cool war, dass man ungelogen mehrere 100m ins Wasser laufen konnte und immernoch stand.

      Heute fuhren wir 3 Stunden nach Washington DC und wieder zurück, um ein Baseballspiel zu sehen. Mit Schweizerdenken hört sich dies ziemlich dumm an, aber hier ist das normal. Wie wir ja alle hoffentlich wissen, reden wir von andere Distanzen in den USA.

      Es waren wie immer zwei super Tage! Und mein Gedanke, einmal in diesem Land leben zu wollen wird immer wieder bestätigt und verstärkt.

      Still Alive... and watching baseball

      April 26, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      So... I'm not dead, but my phone is, which has meant I couldn't upload anything. Makes life difficult, but I'm working on a solution.

      In the mean time, I will slowly try and catch up...

      Today was Capitol building, Capitol library (which had maps, I like maps), but pictures on my phone...

      I also watched the Nationals lose at baseball with Katie, she is hooked now.

    • Day 4

      Baseball, beer, and the Fourth of July

      July 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

      There were no museums in our plans today because we were going to begin our Fourth with the great American pastime. A good ‘ol baseball game!

      We walked to the already busy metro and didn’t have to question if we were on the right line because the train was packed with Nats and Sox fans alike! In fact, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it into the second train because it was so full!

      We arrived at the Nationals Stadium around 10:40 and the game was due to start at 11. Brad bought a Nats hat and shirt because, honestly, if you weren’t wearing red, white, and blue you were sticking out like a sore thumb! You may not agree with their gun laws, president, or tariffs, but you kind of had to be in awe of the rampant patriotism today. There was a guy wear a shirt that had the Constitution written on it!

      Anyway, we got our bearings and got our beverages (two beer for $30!) before sitting in our section (109). It was hot (33c) and we were in the sun, but there were a few clouds and a breeze which made it bearable for the first two innings. By then, we were quite sweaty, so we walked the concourse to cool down and scope out lunch options. They had cooling fans stationed around the stadium, which certainly provided relief! Being traditionalists, Evan and I had Nathan’s hot dogs at the game while Brad opted for crab cake tater tots (a delicious choice, btw). We made it back to our seats just as the game got exciting! Our section was full of Sox fans, so we were fortunate that the Sox took the lead because the people around us were very excited about that!

      During the 7th inning stretch, the cast of Hamilton sang God Bless America, we all sang Take Me Out to the Ballgame and two presidential mascots came out and danced. It was pretty great! Unfortunately the Nats could not get it going today and the Sox ultimately triumphed 3-0. However our section didn’t mind a bit and celebrated the victory!

      We thought our ride back might be crazy, but it wasn’t too bad and we managed to get back to our hotel to cool down. The sun has worn us out these past few days, so some AC and water was needed.
