Observations on Downton DC

There are about 200 restaurants within a 2 block radius of my office, including two malaysian places and two “House of Kabobs”.   Five Guys Burgers is the rough equivalent of the Varisity in Atlanta.
Food in general is quite expensive, but there are several places where it’s fairly cheap, if you hunt around a bit.  Hot Dogs and Empanadas FTW!

Lots of walking, obviously, being a downtown area.   The weather has been very cooperative, up until the last couple of days, but I’ve been carrying an umbrella around for just this contingency.

It’s weird, thinking about the fact that this is one of the two most likely places that a terrorist nuclear  bomb would go off.

There are lots of political jokes used in advertising, which is quite a striking difference from the other places I’ve lived.

This is definitely a “Who do you know” kind of town. Unfortunately most of the interesting people I know in person are all on the west coast or down south. I read a few interesting blogs in the DC area, and I am looking forward to meeting them.
