On Why I Live in DC
I love love love this city!
I joke it's because I like white marble. There's a lot of that here! I do like what the white marble represents - ideals, Rome and politics. Most of the white marble buildings were built before the United States grew into them, and I adore those aspirations.
I also love discussing politics with the smartest cab drivers anywhere. They can debate not only because they listen to NPR all day but often have advanced degrees from universities in other countries. I love hearing different languages on the street corner. And watching the World Cup here.
I learn a lot - information is in the air here and is the currency. I love that too because I value learning.
