J See D.C.

Got back from my trip to DC last night.  We had a great time and I’m glad I finally made it out there.

It was one of the easiest places to vacation I’ve ever been.  Most of the major attractions are within walking distance of one another, a lot of it’s free, and the downtown area is very clean.  And even at the most popular monuments it wasn’t overly crowded (by NYC standards, mind you).  I wasn’t there long enough to get a good handle on navigating the subway system, but it seemed efficient.  Fortunately we had people with us who knew the area to get us from A to B.

I don’t want to bore you with details, so I’ll keep this short.  The monuments are exactly what you’ve already seen in pictures, just a lot bigger and more moving in person.  I walked away from this weekend with a renewed interest in our nation’s history and a desire to go back and relearn all the stuff that I ignored growing up.  I think I feel a documentary kick coming on…

Anyway, it was great to get out of the city a few days and to spend time with friends.  I’m already thinking about my next trip to see everything we didn’t get to this time.

    I know what you mean about more moving in person . . . I love the way history will sometimes sneak up and demand that you pay attention to it.

    Glad you had fun off the island! Can’t wait to hear stories!

    Cue life-changing movement music, ala Chariots of Fire.

    You and your witty titles, making me smile in spite of myself . . . 🙂 Glad you had such a good time back in DC. I keep saying I’d like to go down for more than a weekend; maybe someday I’ll actually do it. And I can’t speak for any of your other readers, but I for one would love to be bored by the details (and some pictures).

    Ignoring my obviously not working website link above… if you re-direct the “Grasping @ Creativity” blog roll link to http://www.graspingatcreativity.com it will work properly again. Thanks.
