90ish days of summer
SILVER SPRING, Md. — I’ve been here since Saturday afternoon, but last night was the first time Jeff and I stepped out and took a gander around the area. Downtown Silver Spring is right down the street from Jeff’s house, so naturally that was the first place he took me on a tour.
One thing I’ve noticed: Maryland is very, very green.
Having lived in a Houston suburb for most of my life, I am always amazed when places like movie theatres, chain restaurants, down-home restaurants, big bookstores and other such amenities are within walking distance of a residential area. My apartment in Columbia, Mo., is about three blocks from downtown — and now Jeff’s house is about five blocks from downtown.
We covered about four miles in our evening walk, and even made a brief foray into Washington, D.C., so we could take this photo:
Today, we will probably hit up D.C. itself and some of the museums, etc. I want to get the tourist spirit out of me before I start interning at washingtonpost.com next Tuesday.
In the meantime, though, more “90ish days of summer” photos can and will be found HERE.
