APAD #DC: a walk through the capital..

…this post has been so named, since my primary mode of transportation there too, were my two feet – partly because I discovered the DC circulator pretty late, but mostly because I still believe the best way to explore or experience a new place is to walk on its streets (holds true especially for Washington DC and NYC)

Of course, when I set out for DC, I had a plan in mind – the plan included a map complete with all the places I wanted to visit marked, the exact routes I would take outlined, the order of visiting them and the time taken at each place were optimized

This was just the first draft of the plan!

obviously, the plan fell through…at multiple stages πŸ™‚ [the important thing, as they say, is to have a plan in the first place…]

But what resulted, was an epic trip nonetheless – from touristy things like the Smithsonian Museums and National Monuments to conversations with random people on the street; walks across Georgetown; exploring food places in DC as well as sharing a room with a drunkard, a super-snorer, a sleep-cribber and a broke guy – this trip had it all

    You need to describe this in more detail πŸ™‚

    I did not know Gandhi and Nehru were on a U.S stamp. The collage must have taken some work.

    • Details off the record!

      Gandhi & Nehru were not on a US stamp – the pic is of an Indian stamp!

      …and yes, the collage did take a lot of work – thanks for noticing πŸ˜€
