Today I decided to walk all the way to Georgetown, taking my time and stopping on the way taking pictures of some famous buildings and landmarks. The first building was the J Edger Hoover FBI building and then the infamous Internal Revenue Service building, which was most fitting for my profession as an expat tax consultant.
After walking from 1st street all the way to 35th street in Georgetown some 35 blocks, I reached my destination. This was an oasis of diversity and art to a buzzy metropolitan Washington DC city. The buildings had no continuity or consistency of colour, each house had a different colour and design. All the shops were cute little boutique types with major chains scattered amongst them. This was a shopper’s dream! I wondered amongst the shops for a few hours from before succumbing to the desire for a rest and a drink in a bar by the waterfront. The weather was warm and delightful, the sun stroked my face as I sipped a cold galls of rose wine passing the time.
After my short break I was back shopping under full steam for a couple of more hours. I couldn’t believe the bargains I was getting! At around 6 pm I went to my chosen restaurant for dinner. The Farmers Fishers Bakers restaurant on the waterfront was recommended to me by the barman at my hotel and what a great recommendation it was! I had a great plate of ribs and an excellent bottle of Argentinian Malbec wine. The atmosphere was very buzzy and animated, and the service was quick and efficient.
After dinner I really didn’t feel like walking 35 blocks so I took a taxi back to the hotel, after all I had earned a rest! I had my usual night cap at the hotel bar before going to bed about 11 pm.
