I Can See My House from Here


NASA Image of the Day for 17 January 2007: A Capital City. Washington, DC as photographed from the International Space Station as it flew over us in May, 2006. Sure, it’s probably a view you can get with a few taps into Google Maps, but still, pretty amazing. And what’s that big white thing on the Mall?

(View it at full resolution without labels.)

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
