When we were at the Egyptian embassy, people threw shoes at the building, for those who don't know, showing the soles of shoes or throwing shoes is a sign of disrespect in the Middle East. Though I support a ceasefire and peace, other people at the protest voiced their opinions of Israel being a terrorist state and Bush being equated to Hitler. Other than that, nothing bad happened!
Yesterday, I hung out with my friend Pia, a German au pair who lives in Bethesda. Her family had a New Year's party, and I met another au pair from South Africa. I was still recovering from New Year's, so much partying in such a short period of time!
