D.C. Segway Tour!

Sara and I took a Segway tour with "Segs in the City" a few weeks ago when we were down in D.C. We had a great time, and both remarked at just how intuitive the Segways are. You step on the and for 2 seconds you think "this might be interesting," and then you're off! It's really incredible. If you get a chance to try one of these things, it was a cheap, fun way to tour the city, and you really have to ride a Segway once to understand the amazing technology inside them.

Guacamole Recipe:

Fresh Salsa base

  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped, seeds and pulp removed
  • fresh cilantro
  • Lemon Juice and Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Salt to taste

Guacamole:

  • 2 Ripe avacados, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons fresh salsa (tomato, onion, cilantro)
  • Lemon or Lime juice (keeps avacado fresh)
  • Salt (I use morton's hot salt for salt & a little kick)
  • Combine ingredients and stir / mash lightly. Don't overmix - big chunks of avacado are nice!
