With the weather really starting to get nice, I was thinking we could stretch our legs and speak some Chinese at the same time. Hopefully there is some interest in doing some hiking-type events. I think it would be great to make these semi-regular.

I figure let’s start off with something easy and convenient: Roosevelt Island.  If you've never been, this little island lies between DC and Arlington, and is easily accessible from the Rosslyn Metro. This is an easy hike, less than 2 miles and flat.

Let's meet outside of the Rossyln Metro at 11am.  Otherwise, meet us over at the island’s parking lot around 11:15-11:30.

Afterwards, maybe we could head over to Cosi or some spot in Rosslyn if people want to keep the conversation going.








Next up, maybe we could try to catch an early bloom of the cherry blossoms on Sunday March, 25th down at the Tidal Basin.

    If later in the afternoon would work better for people, let me know. I don't think I can do any earlier.

    Yep. Here are the driving directions from the site. "Theodore Roosevelt Island is accessible only from the northbound lanes of the George Washington Memorial Parkway. The entrance to the parking lot is located just north of the Roosevelt Bridge.

    Southbound traffic: take Theodore Roosevelt Bridge to Constitution Ave. Take a right on 23rd St. and cross Memorial Bridge. Once on the bridge, bear right to return to the G.W. Parkway."

    The parking lot is just off the George Washington Memorial Parkway, right?
