...On First Time to DC
The events of this week are showing me what type of girl I am, and what type of woman I am becoming. Its wonderful and startling at the same time, experiencing all these new things. The noise of the city; bodies in constant motion by varying means, cars squeezing by a mere hair's breadth at the speed of a hydrogen fueled rocket; seeing the reality of familiar monuments...its a whole lot of awesome! I dig visiting the Smithsonian galleries, for example, it's great because you get inspired by all the rich textures and motifs; the unique color palettes used by ancient peoples...it's humbling. And yet I am made aware still of my limitations. I am (hopelessly) navigationally challenged. I'm a sucker for kitchy postcards. And when hungry enough, I am willing to spend over $15 for a hotel lobby hamburger. One thing is for sure, I love travel, and I'm more than willing to confess this love to the next city on the list.
