Having exhausted the suburbs in Virginia, I decided to spend the day in Georgetown, DC for a change.
I went to work with my cousin La and she brought me to the Metro station nearest her office which was Federal Station SW.
Luckily the rush hour was over so we took our time figuring out what ticket to buy. La hasn't taken the Metro in a while.
The map was more complicated than the one I was used to in Hong Kong but it wasn't really that complicated. Just figure out what color is the line your stop is on and stick to that line.
From Federal Center SW my destination was Foggy Bottom-GWU on the blue line.
I love the architecture of the Metro station. It had an old world feel.
It was so, so chilly when I got out.
It was more than a mile to the farthest point I walked to in Georgetown but it was an easy and pleasant walk.
I didn't really have any destination and the stores were the same everywhere else. Then I remembered La telling me that Dean & Deluca had very good scones so that's where I went.
Can you believe all the scones were sold out? What a bummer!! I looked for something else to buy. I took pictures of all the amazing prepared food they sold. Why don't they have a branch in the 'burbs?
I would like a chicken pot pie please.
Hmm $9 for a chicken empanada? Mahal no? These were just normal sized.
All the desserts didn't affect me until I saw these cookies. It made my heart go flip flop. I wanted to buy the triple chocolate and sea salt chocolate chip but I held on and looked for something different.
This was the first time I saw sushi made with brown rice.
I finally decided on this huge Latte Bar made with dried fruits, nuts, coconut, dulce de leche & chocolate chips.
Latte Bar $4.25
It was just ok for me. It was a bit dry but I enjoyed eating the dried fruits and nuts. It reminded me of trail mix and granola bar combined. I wish I got those cookies instead.
