Last Drinks in the USA, or, James Saved the Day

Wednesday, May 29  2016
Houston, Texas, to Washington, DC, to Madrid, Spain
Camino Day Minus 3 (Continued)

I had planned to take a picture of us outside the front door with our suitcases as we got ready to leave on our pilgrimage. But we were too rushed, so instead you are seeing our last drinks in the USA before we board the plane to Spain. James with his Blue Moon including an orange slice and me with my Plain Jane Miller Light.

James deserved the premium beer. He saved the day this morning. Our “Super” Shuttle (Blue Van) driver left without us after waiting maybe a minute. I was freaking out. I was having no luck with booking another driver or a taxi. It is Memorial Day weekend, after all. Parking at the airport for such a long trip would be outrageously expensive.

James suggested Uber. The Uber guy arrived in six minutes and was fabulous. We made it to the airport with time to spare. Hooray for Uber (my first Uber ride) and James! And bottoms up to the Camino.
