We aren't leaving for another three weeks, but we had our official farewell-to-D.C. party last night.
We had food (check out that awesome cake...it was like we were getting married again), and a fridge full of Mexican beer. Though as I pointed out, this would have been a good time to stock up on American microbrews or something that will be less readily available than Corona and Dos Equis. At least there wasn't any Tecate.
And there was fraternizing with friends and family.
Of course there was dancing, or at least something resembling it.
And a bit of mischief as well.
And this morning, there were hangovers, but we don't need any images of that.
Even though this was our farewell party, as noted we still have a significant chunk of time before leaving. And most people at the party jumped on the opportunity to try and schedule something else with us before we go. We'll do what we can to visit with our friends as much as possible before leaving, but I fear there aren't enough hours remaining to be accommodating.
This marked our second-to-last-stop on the farewell tour, which will reach its conclusion while en route to Hermosillo when we have a blowout in Kentucky with my friends and family, and then finally the farewells, see-you-laters, etc. will be done.
Then we get to look forward to all of the return parties in two years between posts.
