Preparing for a 6 week trip is something I've never done before. There are many things to pack, many things to research, and many things to do before leaving home. The longest I've ever been away from home was a 2.5 week trip to Germany/Italy with Holly when we were first married.
This is essentially a six week paid sabbatical to learn from the best minds in radiology and pathology- consisting of a series of didactic lectures 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Many residents "burn out" by week 4. We'll see how long I can last.
DC this time of year is gorgeous, and I'm bringing the Bianchi, hoping to get some serious mileage both commuting to/from DuPont Circle and Walter Reed.
What will become of my time in DC? One thing is certain: I shall be severely homesick for the girls and Bennett.
