I really enjoy visiting Washington D.C. I’m not entirely sure I would enjoy living there, unless of course I happened to come into a small fortune. Otherwise, I suspect the commute would get old rather quickly. But when I visit, I work right downtown (across from Metro Center) and stay at hotels within walking distance. This makes Washington a very “walkable” city. Today I will offer a random selection of pictures from my walk to and from work on a recent visit.

The Washington monument visible over the trees in the park.

Contrasting architectural styles – always a sign of a living city.
And finally, the “crazy man” preaching, very loudly, that “you are all going to go to hell”. One of the things I love about America is that people like this are allowed to freely speak their mind – and given the appropriate amount of attention. Other than one student who appears to be taking his picture, everyone else is completely ignoring him.
Terrific town to visit for so many reasons. One could spend weeks there and still not see everything.
Sigh – I know. I have spent many weeks there over the years and have barely scratched the surface.
