Pull up a chair, I have had a very fancy 43 hours!
I just got back from Washington, DC, where I attended a private reception co-hosted by my favorite Grameen Foundation, for Professor Muhammad Yunus, Mary Robinson, and Dr. Pedro Jos Greer, all of whom received the Presidential Medal of Freedom yesterday.
You can imagine that when I said I was going to DC for the party, my friends had two questions for me: What are you going to wear? And do you get to attend the ceremony itself and meet President and Mrs. Obama?
