A Farewell in Photos to D.C.

Farewell to the Metro, my connection to the city.

Farewell to my favorite weekend destination, Eastern Market

Farewell to all my former places of employment, the Holocaust Museum, The Children’s Partnership, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum

Farewell to Dupont Circle, site of many interesting lunches, where I met “the Lord,” learned the sandwich song from Raccoon, and made the acquaintance of the only black Grand Master in chess.

Farewell to the monuments, emblematic of the city.

Farewell to all the other sights and sounds, both grand and mundane.

Farewell, D.C. I’m sure we’ll meet again one day.

  1. I just started reading (got to your through darling Nomidic Matt) and am a native of Bethesda.. I’m so jealous of your trip and will be reading as you begin this adventure!!!! Keep us posted..

  2. When I headed back to work on Tuesday morning, after a week away, I momentarily became overjoyed… I thought you would be there. “Oh yes,” I thought, “Theresa will be back too!” Obviously that joy-balloon deflated rather quickly. I’m so sad I missed your goodbye party. Bon Voyage! Tonight I will find the fated photo and will soon launch the Theresa-Jeff-Positioning-Project.

  3. Such a cool city! The new Smithsonian director was on NPR yesterday morning and the whole time I kept thinking “I like DC. I like the Smithsonian. Maybe I could go work there?”

    I love your pics, especially the reflection of Wash Monument in the Vietnam memorial.

  4. What a nice tribute! I can’t wait to see the photos from your upcoming travels!

    It was great to see you and Jeff today. I wish you both a great trip, full of laughter, fun and safety. I hope that you don’t have to use that first aid kit except for a bandaid and that you can leave it in the last country that you visit.

    Take care and have a fabulous adventure!
