A few scenes from Washington, DC earlier this week, specifically around Dupont Circle near my hotel just down New Hampshire.

It was an alternately overcast and sunny day, one of those changeable days where nothing outside seems fixed; hot and muggy, then a bit chilly, overcast and squint-worthy weather, then resplendent and sunny, etc. There’s one thing that’s always just what you expect, though:

I don’t mind the Metro, and I don’t understand the culture of complaining that seems to surround it. It’s unlike any other subway system I’ve experienced, and gets points for being both distinctive and clean. Maybe I’d change my opinion if I lived there and had to use it for daily travel, but I hope not.
