Comments: Washington in the Summer

I love DC.
When I lived in silver spring md, every day off I was on the metro to the smith... Or the archives...
I drank in the bar John Wilkes boothe did before going to ford's theater...

Odd. Japanese in DC... Manhattan is full of Chinese. Wonder if that means anything.

You make me want to visit the city, as if I've already fallen in love with it.

Hubby is in Houston this week. Temps over 100! I'll take 90, thanks!

People like you make me proud to be an American.

I hate big cities and their traffic, but still, D.C. is an amazing place. I visited relatives there years ago. I'd commute into D.C. early and spend all day walking and seeing the sights and sites, then I'd leave around 3 p.m. to avoid the horrible traffic. Last time I visited was during a 2-hour layover on a train trip. Their massive train station is a work of art. And there IS a lot of truth to the cliche that "it's not the heat, it's the humidity." South Florida's steambath heat feels MUCH worse than higher temperatures out West, where there's much lower humidity.

Lucky you were not here this weekend. This sucks. Who knew there was such a thing as a "land huricane"? There are more people out of power than our last real huricane. It's really hot to boot.

I've been to DC a few times, hubby's Aunt/Uncle live 30 minutes outside of it.

I've seen everything and can't wait to go back again.

My favorites are the Smithsonians though.

And we have seen it from the view of people who live their, so we got to see some things the normal tourists don't do.

Oh Lordy - the "hot" contest thing - drives me INSANE. As you know I'm in Melbourne Australia. Our summer temps average 90 - 113. My sister lives in a mining town in outback Queensland where it's frequently 122 in the middle of summer, but hot is relative and totally dependant on where you are and what you are doing. I'd still rather be in her backyard pool at 122 than walking through the city in a business suit when it's 82!!

Love your attitude! x
