It was the last day of our tour package. Our next destination was Virginia, where Jacky’s sister and her family live. Warren brought his loving wife along and drove us to Orlando International Airport. From there, we took a domestic flight by US Airways to Reagan National Airport in Virginia.

Jacky’s sister, Jaime, was working when we reached Reagan Airport, after a 2-hour flight. We waited for a while before she came. There weren’t many shops around the airport so we were reading a complimentary magazine with David Beckham making the biggest headline about his arrival in Los Angeles for his new soccer club – Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy.

It is a lovely home for Jaime, Frank (a Caucasian American) and their two very adorable sons – a four-year-old and an eight-month-old (in 2007).

Both Frank and Jaime started planning for our itineraries for the next 7 days, soon after we reached their home. They were pretty concerned that we would feel bored while staying with them, so they suggested that we could go to the nearby theme parks, take a cruise, visit the monuments and museums in Washington D.C, catch an opera and shop at factory outlets. Frank highly recommended us to watch The Phantom of the Opera at The Kennedy Center Opera House located in Washington D.C. At first, we weren’t so keen to watch opera. But he was so confident that we would love it and immediately bought us two tickets online at USD98 each, from Ticket Master.
