As I posted about earlier, I got to go to the Inauguration speech on Monday at the Capitol. It was a lot of fun. Even though it was freezing, I am glad I went.
We got pretty good tickets and even though we couldn’t see the whites of the President’s eyes, we were still comfortably situated.
This was one of those days that I felt really lucky to live in a city like DC. It is a hard feeling to describe to people who have never been here. All the history, wonder, beauty and electricity is best described with a single sigh of satisfaction. Every time someone asks me how I like living in DC, I smile. How can I NOT love it?! I don’t understand people who say “meh” about living here.
Several of my friends had tickets to the speech as well, but we were all spread out. I went with two other green ticket holders, then we all met up after the speech for some great food at Matchbox on 14th.
I had a badge for the W Inaugural Brunch but wasn’t able to make it there or to the parade. I caught that on TV as well as all the other festivities. Very nice, DC, very nice.
