|Tormod arrives at Dulles|
Tormod, my cousin from Oslo, spent three days in DC. We kept him very busy!
He visited my Norwegian class and was a big hit. We put him on center stage!

We spent a day in Annapolis. We first drove through the colonial capital of Maryland, showing Tormod St. Anne's Church, the State House, and the beautiful tree-lined streets with their lovely houses. We then stopped to walk around the Naval Academy.
After lunch Tormod and I boarded the Pride of Baltimore II, a schooner from the War of 1812, that was anchored in Annapolis for a few days. It was on an educational tour up and down the East Coast.
We stopped for ice cream at Straw Brothers.
Last stop: The Kunta Kinte Memorial. Alex Haley's ancestors docked here upon their arrival in America.
