    Washington DC visit: follow-up

    My trip to DC last week was extremely fruitful and successful. So successful, in fact, that I will be moving there after this coming weekend, beginning a job in the advancement office of Dominican House. I would request your continued prayers for a smooth and safe transition.

    Incidentally, several folks felt apprehensive about offering tips on things as "mundane" as good places to eat and have a pint. Have no fears - such suggestions are more than welcome. After all, where else is a good papist supposed to do his plotting? :)

    I'll be in Washington DC this week....

    .... and as a result, blogging will be sparse to non-existent until the weekend.
    I've already posted on my plans to study in DC this fall. During my trip this week I'll be meeting with faculty/staff from Dominican House, visiting some potential living situations and perhaps conducting a job interview or two.
    Needless to say, this would be the perfect time to drop me a last-minute email ("thomas {at} americanpapist.com") with any tips you might have to pass along. I haven't nailed-down anything definitively in terms of housing or employment yet, so my eyes and ears are still open. Also, a big thank you to everyone who has already emailed me - your suggestions and contacts have been invaluable!
    I'll be moving permanently to DC in mid-to-late August.
