Work Trip

I went to Langley AFB which is actually in Hampton, VA for 2 weeks to work on medical equipment and QA their work. This trip was great for several reasons. #1. Ashley, my tech school roommate, is stationed there. #2. Langley is close to Virginia Beach and other cool cities. #3. Langley is close enough for Corey to come down and visit since we had a 3 day weekend. #4. We did not have to pack our stuff and the truck up everyday to go to other bases. We just stayed there the whole time. Much easier. #5. Devin and Sarah and Eva met us in Yorktown so we could hang out and then they took us to a really cool restaurant in Williamsburg.

City Cafe & the Moscow Ballet

Last night Jason, Christina, Corey and I went to see the Nutcracker. Christina found an awesome restaurant near the Opera Lyric House in Baltimore and it was delicious! Of course any trip to Baltimore includes detours through the hood so adventure always accompanies. City Cafe was worth the peril. It was part cafe, part nice restaurant. We ate up in the loft where it was nice and warm and the service was great. We all got different entrees and all were mouth watering. There, I'm a food critic.
Next, we went to the Opera Lyric House for the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker. It was awesome! I'm no ballet critic but I thought it was fantastic. Plus, the butts were phenomenal. I had also never seen the Nutcracker so now I'm a little more clued in on things cultured. I did not understand or really like the rats and I kind of think this little girl was dropping acid.
We had so much fun and we're glad it worked out since the original show was cancelled due to the blizzard so luckily we made the rescheduled show.
