Last time we spoke, I was not crazy about Washington, District of Columbia. I will say, now I am. I think it is one of the top ten cities to which I have been. Paris is still #1, but D.C. is up there. Here's why:
1. World Class museums
2. not too big
3. not too small
4. smart people
This is really all I need in a city, but let's add one more key requirement
5. Outstanding public transport (which makes sense, because the nation's capital caters to tourists and gets money from the federal government every so often...)
I can elaborate on this more later...
