Tourist’s View

They sat down next to me and asked me where a good place to eat was. I sent them toward Georgia Brown’s as their midwestern accent betrayed their Indiana Home. Before they left, though, I asked them if they knew about the protest. Both older women with greying blonde hair, they nodded and said “it’s about immigration, right?” I nodded. They asked me, “will they be allowed in Lafayette Park?”

I shook my head and they seemed relieved.

It was clear they were headed to see the White House with no desire to be overrun by a mass protest. Such is the tourist’s view today.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
