Where I stayed
The hostel we stayed at while in DC was ubercheap at $20 a night! Free PB&J 24/7, and a chance to meet other travelers from all over the world! However, the location was less than ideal: lots of garbage and boarded up windows. The restaurant next to the hostel had a sign in the window advertising "coffee, pizza, and notaries." Perhaps for that on-the-go girl who needs need an espresso pronto while legalizing important documents?!? Other mentionable sites on the block included a man walking his dog--and the pooch donned a Louis Vuitton gun holster. Greeeeat.
Reminiscent of our Memphis misadventure, Chad and I stuck out like a pair of big dirty hippies
In short, the DC scene is not for us laid-back Wisconsinites-- business
people dressed up in suits hurry around with cross and weathered faces. More
than once, people groaned and vocalized their frustrations at us if we
took too long to board the metro or blocked the escalator for those
who fancied jogging up it. Even if it wasn't our favorite city, we did see a few sites and get a free bus tour. :)
We came, we saw, we conquered. Chad and I fulfilled our mission to submit all our visa paperwork, and hopefully we spread some good 'Sconny love while we were there.
