Fortunately, there was enough time during our layover in the nation’s capital on the way to Rome to grab a frosty java chip Frappuchino, a mug, and a snapshot.  I never drink Frappuchinos, but it seemed like the right thing to do before embarking on a 10 hour flight in a 2 x 3 x 5 ft cube.  What you DON’T see is that to the right of the storefront was a life-sized cardboad cutout of Barack Obama.  Thumb’s up!
