When we lived in Maryland, I commuted from our apartment in Bethesda to Georgetown to work at Paper Source. In the early days, this meant I drove to the nearest metro stop (Grosvenor-Strathmore), then rode for seven stops on the red line to Farragut North where I hopped on the Circulator (a bus that ran about every ten minutes). It took about an hour each way on a good day. Eventually, I wised up and realized if I cut out the bus and walked from Dupont Circle to Georgetown, I would not only get a bit of exercise, but I spend less time dreading the wait for the bus.
Last Thursday, while we were in DC, we took the same walk from Dupont to Georgetown. It's crazy how quickly everything - even the fast paced, cutting back and forth to avoid stoplights mentality - came rushing back. At the time, the driving, parking, metro riding and bussing, I could do absolutely do without. But I totally remember that walk as a highlight of working in the city.
All photos this time around were taken with my iPhone in the middle of a very humid, very gray day. See all photo walk posts here.
