Last night I was fortunate enough to meet up with a friend I met last summer at Gnomedex in Seattle, along with his friend who were visiting the States from South Africa. After a day of sight seeing, I picked the two of them up from the metro and met MIOL at Mai Thai down at the end of King St. in Old Town Alexandria.

Below is a picture of Colin enjoying his Tiger drink
And Carly enjoying her drink...
And MIOL and I at dinner...
After dinner, I wanted to show our friends what says America over and over again... frozen custard! I took them back to Del Ray and over to the Dairy Godmother. It's not surprising to say that they were both REALLY impressed and in love with custard once we were finished.
Me explaining what I like on my custard
Yep, that's a Rice Crispy sundae with marshmallow topping on chocolate custard.

At the end of the evening we were sad to drop our friends off at their hotel, but motivated to try and pull it together to make a trip down to see them. It's always interesting to hear a different perspective on things, and how our politics, pop culture, and technology is perceived outside the US. MIOL just liked their accents I think... ;)
