I thought this was a general Canaja-travel thread, FrogPrince -- didn't mean to steal your thunder! I *live* in the DC area (old friend of Bill and Rita, longtime Glen Echo dancer, occasional chantey-singer when work allows) and Richard and I will be splitting town for the honeymoon. Bad timing in one way: we'll miss the Folklife festival (which promises some lovely Welsh harmony-singing) as well as the July Royal Mile Pub Sing.
Thanks for the black-fly info, Dorthy! Guess we'll need to start adding more beer to the diet to keep them away, no?
