PDO!

As part of the Fulbright, my travel to the PDO, my hotel while in DC, food while at the PDO, and $100 for food not covered while at the official PDO (they cover breakfast and lunch). So as a note that is $100 for three days. July 20-23, 2012 is the PDO at the Renaissance Hotel near the convention center in Downtown DC (Mt.Vernon St/Convention Center stop).

Since I will be in Bloomington at Indiana University studying Macedonian at the time of the PDO I will be flying from Indianapolis to DC. I'll leave at 7:25am and arrive at DC Reagan at 8:59 AM. Check in at the hotel is on average at 3pm, but check-in for the PDO is from 12:00pm-5:30pm. So hopefully, I will be able to check in early/ at least get luggage storage at the Renaissance. Then maybe I will go explore (maybe. might be a nred and study over the materials that I should be doing at IU.

The Program:

Wednesday July 20
6 - 7:30 pm          Opening Reception
7:30 pm               Evening Free

Thursday July 21
8-9 am            Continental breakfast
9-4:15 pm       Sessions (including lunch break)
4:15 pm          Evening Free

Friday July 23
7:30-8:30 am    Continental Breakfast
8:30-2:15pm     Sessions (including lunch break)
2-2:15 pm         Evaluation and Closing

Then I have until 6:30pm at which time I will be on a flight back to Indianapolis. Then drive back down to Bloomington.

Sounds like fun! Who knows what other info will be coming in soon!

See you around the globe!

Hi Cassidy,

I found your blog in the course of some Google searching. I am a Fulbright ETA for Macedonia for 2011-2012, so I just wanted to say that I look forward to meeting you at the PDO and likely seeing you in Europe later this year! Excitement!
