Over the past couple of weeks I've had the pleasure of traveling to Chicago and Indianapolis for business and yesterday I flew to Washington D.C. for the day. I've always wanted to visit D.C. but I've never had the opportunity until yesterday. To say that I was excited about this trip would be an understatement. After my morning meeting I had 4 hours to take in as much of the city as I possibly could before I had to fly back to Atlanta.
My cab driver obviously could see the word tourist written all over my forehead, because he thought he could convince me to pay him one hundred dollars round trip . Please! I boarded the metrobus and paid six dollars round trip, I'm nobody's fool. Remind me never to fly into Washington Dulles, it's a hike into downtown D.C. !
I managed to stroll down to Pennsylvania Avenue to see The White House up close. President Bush and I were supposed to sit down and discuss the Federal Marriage Amendment and the Don't Ask Don't Tell Policy with a public apology to all LGBT Americans to follow on the White House lawn, but he was busy dodging impeachment. LOL !
There's still so much of the city I haven't seen, so I've got to plan another trip in the near future. Despite the extremely hot weather I was elated to finally walk the streets of D.C.(no pun intended) .
