Benefits of a Sabbatical: Seeing the Space Shuttle


I’m learning about time on this sabbatical, in many ways. How it is a commodity we all spend and how we choose to spend it.

One of the cool benefits of  being on sabbatical and a free schedule is that you can take advantage of once in a lifetime event like seeing the space shuttle come to your town. Also helps you that live in one of the best cities in the world. this was one of those times when you feel so lucky to be here and to see it, and realize, hey this kind of thing just happens here in DC, which we take for granted.

The space shuttle flewover the mall in Washington DC about three times before heading to its final destination at the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy museum near Dulles airport in Virginia. My friend Martina and her friends joined me.

To see some great video of the shuttle coming in over the mall, you have to go to my Picasa photo site.
