Visiting Sarah and Donald in Michigan 2010

After our wonderful airline experience, already documented by Kevin, the fun began in Ann Arbor. First and most importantly, Sarah, Donald, Kevin and I went to worship the Sandwich at Zingerman's. The Zingerman Reuben, on French bread (a Sarah-substitution) was divine. It was so good that it reminded me of Schwartz's smoked meat sandwich in Montreal.

We walked up and down Main Street and State Street, checking out the Farmer's Market. We walked around the campus and the law school.

As you know, Sarah and Donald are engaged and they are getting married through the Catholic Church, so we also swung by the Ann Arbor church where they are taking their pre-marriage classes.

Back at their house, I got to see Donald's Supreme Court Clerkship offer letter from Justice Scalia. I thought about taking a picture of it, but somehow that seemed weird.

For dinner, we had Indian at Shalimar's Restaurant. I ate chicken korma for the first time ever. Then we went home to relax and watch the History Channel. Watching the History Channel, is, afterall, how Sarah and Donald got engaged in the first place. Since eating is one of our favorite things to do together, we started the next day with breakfast at Afternoon Delight. Again, I had something I had never eaten before, cheese blintz. Who knew Ann Arbor would be such a culinary adventure?

Sarah and Donald have long been soccer fans, and Kevin and I enjoy the World Cup so we were all excited to watch the final together. We were all rooting for Spain (and even attempted to buy matching Spain shirts- but failed) and Donald invited a few clerk-friends to join us, one of whom was rooting for the nasty cheating Netherlands. I am particularly supportive of Xabi Alonso because we share a last name, and De Jong from the Netherlands kung-fu kicked him square in the chest. It was hard to imagine how it could have been a mistake. Thus, Spain victory was doubly sweet.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend, Donald and Sarah!
