My family couldn't believe I'd never been to the capital so they took me there after Xmas. It looked like a city I might like; though the fact that it has one of the highest crime rates in the country, there's a ghetto right next to the White House, and the part of the Potomac River near the ghetto is one of the most polluted areas on the blessed planet, well, that was a bit too much for me to stomach the idea of living there for real. The Potomac Conservancy website's press release about pollution can be viewed by clicking the title of this post.
The people in DC were friendly enough though. I loved the area around Georgetown University.
