Last night in the States
In case anyone is doubting my ability to NOT be ready for things, I was only half packed by the time Rachel absolutely had to pick me up. We weren't headed to the airport though. I spent my final night with Rachel, and we went to see the Great Gatsby as performed by the Washington Ballet Company. The show was amazing. The score, performed by a live jazz band, was brilliant, and still playing in my head. It is a must see show! It was a great way to spend my final night in America. In hindsight though, it should have been obvious that the best way to spend my final night would have been to sleep. You only live once or so they say. After the show we hung out for a bit, and then we drove to the airport. I finished packing my bag in the back of her SUV, in the airport parking lot.
We said our goodebyes and I headed into the desolate Dulles terminal to wait for my 5:26 AM flight to Buenos Aires.
