I saw my cousin today. He is doing remarkably better and can now speak nearly a recognizable sentence. He has glioblastoma multiforme Stage IV which is about the worst diagnosis of a brain tumor that one can get. It was a good visit, and I was reminded once again of the fact that the cure for some of these diseases is often as bad as the disease itself. In his case, radiation nearly did him in.
After arriving in DC, I went to an incredible restaurant for dinner. It was the Marrakesh which is a Morrocan restaurant. It was recommended by a friend who said that it was quite the dining experience. There were 7 courses and a belly dancer came out around 9 PM. The meal took about 2.5 hours. I would highly recommend it if you are ever in DC and want to experience something unique in the way of food and atmosphere.
I'm off to my meeting early tomorrow. Hope to catch up with everyone sometime then. Maybe I'll try Ethiopian food tomorrow night. Leaving you with lots of gratitude for this day.
