I venture out of the office today, but instead of going shopping like I usually do (hardy har) my friend and I walked to the Hill to catch a glimpse of Obama. It was really cool seeing the helicopters circling the Hill, flying low. And the mass of people - surprisingly, not as many as I expected. Lots of American flags flying, and countless numbers of cameras. We were close enough to see him wave. My friend saw him, and I *think* I saw him, although, I can't say for sure. She kept saying, "he's right there, beside the man in the red shirt!" Anyway - it was neat just being there, and getting a cardio workout out of it, too!
