First impressions – ‘This is America!’

Our taxi ride into central DC was a great experience. It was sunny, and people were jogging in green, wooded spaces. As we turned a corner I spotted the Washington monument, and the Capital dome. Then we passed the Watergate building: “That’s where Nixon was caught cheating,” our taxi driver informed us. Then we spotted the building we were going to be staying in on the other side of the road – “Oh, that’s it – is it possible to turn around?” – “Of course,” laughed our driver, “This is America!”
