Folklife Hump Day
The 4th landing mid-week this year kinda puts a damper on a customary extended weekend. On the other hand, it breaks up the work week nicely being hump day. If you’re looking for something to do before dusk, and have the stomach to deal with tourists (that is before the t-factor really hits the fan later in the day), consider checking out the 2007 Folklife Festival.
On a tip from Carl, I swung down on Saturday to see the Mekong River area. The Northern Ireland and Historic Virginia programs didn’t hold much interest for me, especially after dealing with poduncks from all points. Sheesh, after that last comment I guess I’ve now morphed into a confirmed DC local snob.
Food, and in particular crafts, are on full display. Bamboo weaving, fish trap building, silver smithing, pottery, culinary demonstrations and probably a dozen other things I missed are all worth visiting.
Or, you could just sleep in (my plan) and then mess with a giant evil corporation.
