I spent yesterday afternoon exploring Old Town Alexandria… in the snow! I headed over to meet Rose (whom I’m staying with) for lunch at Brueggers Bagels (amazing… why do we not do more bagels in the UK?) followed by a stroll down by the waterfront.

Takeoff Over The Pier

I walked past a coffee place called Misha’s on my way to meet Rose, only to be informed later that it’s one of the best coffee places in Alexandria, so naturally I had to check it out. Great coffee…

Misha's Coffee

This is quite probably the best cupcake I have ever had in my whole entire life… thank you Misha’s!

Old Town Alexandria is one of the more historic, old areas here – it has buildings dating back to the 1700’s. Not old by European standards but really cool for the US. It was cool to go walking in the snow, nice to see the US in different weather. Also went to this really cool place called the Torpedo Factory… more on that later.
