I am learning to love this beautiful, powerful, lonely place. Here are a few glimpses of my first month in Washington, DC:
Crossing into the National Mall on Inauguration Day.
I walk as much as I can; these old, beautiful row houses are their own entertainment.
Jazz at HR-57 on H Street. Our late-night snack from the bar: waffles and nutella.
Rush Hour at Union Station. But really, most hours seem to be rush hours in DC.
Mayor Vincent Gray speaks at a media event to launch the new 1776 startup accelerator campus in downtown DC.
St. Monica and St. James Episcopal Church.
The ordered chaos of Capitol Hill Books.
A church on River Road NW.
Capitol Hill, at peace.
(Note: I stole the title of this post, of course, from The Colbert Report‘s “Better Know a District” series.)
