A Capital Day


I slept in a bit this morning, then headed out to enjoy the city. The temperature was warm but comfortable, with minimal humidity. Under a cloudless blue sky, I walked across the P Street bridge from Georgetown to DuPont Circle and then took the Metro downtown.

This time of the summer, with school still in session in much of the country, there are far fewer student groups on hand as well as fewer families from the heartland, compared to the third week in July when I've made the Kennedy Institute trip over the years. There do seem to be more foreign tourists, no doubt benefiting from the weak dollar.

It certainly is nice to amble around the capital without a schedule to keep, nor students to keep in tow, nor security clearances to worry about!
