FINISHED!!!

Tuesday night, November 29th, I crossed into Washington DC. I hiked by the National Shrine, Howard University, and to the U-Street Corridor, where I stayed with Kate, a friend from AmeriCorps. It was meaningful to see her again, as she and I went together to President Obama’s Inauguration three years earlier. We ordered pizza and hung out with her friends Anne and Kristen.

Construction I

Despite the economic turndown, on this walk in Nov ’11 I didn’t see evidence that construction was slowing down. If anything, I noticed a lot of new buildings going up and new businesses opening up. Here’s a new project being completed in Southern Maryland.
