No Place I Would Rather Be

It's the hidden gems and local neighborhoods and hot spots. It's the art, music, food, and culture, and yes even the tourists on the National Mall. The marble and stone, the cherry blossoms and sounds of the Tidal Basin. It's the Anacostia and the Potomac and the rowers on an early morn'. It's Ben's Chili Bowl and Julia's Empanadas and Mumbo Sauce everywhere. It's cheering on the Nats and Caps with friends and strangers alike. The feeling of being a small part of the history and awe of this nation, the feeling you get knowing that change happens here. It's Red Line Delays and your friendly WMATA Bus driver. It's old and historic neighborhoods filled with stories and multiple generations of Washingtonians; yet also new and modern neighborhoods with stories yet to be written.It's the people. It's the place. It's the purpose. It's Washington, DC - and there truly is no other place I'd rather be.
