I’ve never been to Washington, DC. Just hasn’t been on the radar screen.
When we went to Maryland last week for the funeral, hubby suggested we swoop down into DC to have a look-see. It was intended to be a quick drive through and I took some bad photos from the car.
Now, I can say I’ve been to Washington and it’s a wild and crazy place!
The entry was through Georgetown – what a yuppie area! Scads of young people carrying their Starbucks while visiting yuppie stores. It was good to see young people spending money.
The first thing I saw was a small group of marchers in a group carrying a huge log. They didn’t have a sign or anything but seemed to be chanting something. Couldn’t hear what the words of the chant were, but man that log was huge!
In another area, a single guy with a megaphone was singing something in front of a cop. The cops kept an eye on him while trying not to listen to whatever he was complaining about. One-on-one policing.
