I’ve just gotten back [well, last night] from a short trip to the Washington DC area – namely Bethesda, Maryland. I think it’s kind of a nice place – except for all the traffic. Lots of green and hills. Except: I really didn’t see much. I went to an office and sat in a room without windows for 6 hours or so. Next time I go, maybe I’ll be there long enough to do some touring and take some pictures. I’ve never been to the Smithsonian yet.
The cool thing about this trip was that since it was a one night trip, I didn’t have much in the way of luggage – so I rode the motorcycle to the airport. It was pretty cool to be able to do that. The only problem is that I had nowhere to stash my helmet – they’ve taken all the lockers offline.
One thing I did notice about the area though – there are a lot of political talk radio shows on the air. I even listened a while to CSPAN Radio… Well, it is the capitol.
