We get lost in DC

So we left Arlington with maps in hand to work our way to Pennsylvania. The whole time we were in NJ, we were surrounded by family members with smart phones and GPS devices at the ready. Of course, we are hicks and have nothing of the sort. My map reading skills are not the best and the road signs were confusing. Yes, we got lost. Perhaps we should have taken the bus!

As we were trying to figure out where we were and where to go, I thought I would take some photos out the car window again.

We were at a dead stop at a traffic light with cars in front of us, also stopped, when a taxi behind us started honking his horn repeatedly. I don't think he liked us taking photos--as if we were slowing him down when no one in front of us was moving at all.

People and dogs

We drove and drove and had no idea where we were. Eventually, we realized we were in the middle of "Embassy Row."

Finally we found a gas station and stopped for directions. Yes, we were way off the path, but soon found our way to the highway and began the drive to York, PA, where we had reservations for the night.
