While standing in line for a cup of hot chocolate for my very cold son while on our drive along Skyline drive, among the buzzing crowds of DC'ers out for the weekend, this very interesting, and still woman caught and held my eye. I spoke to her son (maybe just a relative, not sure) who told me a little bit about her. She is an Ethiopian Orthodox nun visiting the US for the first time. Not sure what being a nun in the old Orthodox Church (an oriental christian religion) entails, but this woman exuded an amazing inner peace.
She was apparently amazed by the trees. Not sure, but to see the amazing Fall foliage in Appalachia after living a long life in dry Ethiopia must border on a religious experience.
The restaurant was very dark, and unfortunately, this was the best I could do given the light.
