Alice in Maryland: Day 2 (23/04)

Rick and I spent the morning looking at the website work I'd been invited over to look at. Much to my relief, it was easily within my remit: converting existing pages to a new template, very much what I do in my day job. Now I'm home, it's just a question of finding time to do it...

Afterwards we knocked off and, with Lori, went on a jaunt to a nearby town for Vietnamese food and some shopping at Lotte, a vast international supermarket specialising in oriental foodstuffs. I love poking around foreign food stores so I was delighted my hosts did too - though, to be honest, I would have found just as much awe and wonder in a Wal-Mart or Target.

Things I Ate
Pork banh mi and bubble tea at the Korean restaurant. Later, when Rick asked if I was ready for dinner and I said perhaps not quite yet, he asked if I was sick or somethin', so he got the measure of me pretty quickly.
