Philly Bound

I’m leaving this afternoon for a conference in Philly (and hopefully a little exploration of the city will be possible) so it seemed appropriate to share some snaps from my trip to DC in late March for, you guessed it, another conference. 

 Riding the rails on the way to DC

 I wasn't aware it needed saving. Regardless, this was the conference I wished I was attending

 On my way to dinner in DC

A little after dinner stroll to the White House

 The interior of my hotel: American panopticon

The conference program

 That's me!

More of the hotel
 
 I was able to fit in a stroll around the Capitol Building grounds

Outside the Folger Shakespeare Library - back in 2009 I lived in DC for three months and did research here for my dissertation

I hope everyone has a great weekend – wish me luck with my last ever conference paper as a graduate student!

And, to help make your weekend a fashionable one, don't forget that I'm looking to do some major clearing out of the Blog Shop over the next two months. I am really trying to clean it out before I move to Canada (less to pack and all that jazz) so, if you see something you like, shoot me an email and maybe we can negotiate a price that's lower than the one currently listed. So I can move some stock and you can get some big, big savings. Everybody wins!

Have fun in Philly! I love the D.C pictures, isn't it sad that I live so close to D.C and I have never been that close to The White House? I'm crappy explorer of my hometown.

Courtney, I totes didn't know cycling needed saving either.... Too many bikers, in my opinion. OK, I'm just bitter I can't ride a bike.
Have fun in your conference!

I absolutely adore travelling by train! It seems to me it's much easier to do in the east - all the cities are closer together. Can't wait for you mass exodus back to the great white north!!!!!

You know I just LOVE DC. I am going there tomorrow actually. These pictures are fun.
Since you get to travel a bit for conferences, isn't instagram so convenient for quick snaps of the cities you visit? I just love it! I practically never use my digital camera now because it is less hassel to have everything with me.
Glad you enjoyed your Philly trip! Can't wait to see photos from that.
