Obama is everywhere in DC and I loved to see it! I took this picture in a Borders bookstore - right at the main entrance. I wish I was going to be there for the inauguration, but with 4 million people (projection has been lowered I believe) supposedly showing up, I don't think I could stand the crowds. There is supposed to be something like 10,000 busses and they don't even know where they are going to put them.
I was on the Mall for the first free concert by the Beach Boys on July 4th in 1980 and there were 500,000 people there. The police couldn't contain the crowds - there were a lot of crimes including rapes and muggings. My purse got stolen. I saw naked people just walking around. It took me hours to get home on the Metro, but damn was it a memorable experience!
I went to the Clinton inauguration at the Lincoln Memorial. It was HolyShitThat'sCold outside, but I stayed to watch him play the saxaphone with some wonderful entertainers.
I love DC during these times. I hope they have good TV coverage of the inauguration here in Kuwait.
The first one is the intersection of M Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown, DC. The second is the view at sunset from my mother's patio. The third is our house in Virginia. The last is the Christmas tree at Reston Towne Center.
By the way - WTF is UP with blogger formatting when you add pictures? Is it possible for them to like make it easier????
