After a walk up Massachusetts Avenue from the Dupont Circle Metro stop, Akira arrives at a large house on Woodland Drive.
"This is the place I was telling you about," he says to his companions. He leads the way along the stone walkway to the front door. "I'll tell them we're here." He presses a small white button under a black rectangle. "Akira Sanada and guests, here to see Ms. Ravenscroft and Mr. DuSable, please?" A pause. "They're expecting us."
After a few minutes, there is a faint buzzing noise and then a soft click. Opening the door, he gestures for his companions to come with him. "Follow me."
