Spent last week in Washington DC (and environs), being trained as an Instructor/Facilitator for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent’s International Humanitarian Law course. (more on that in a later post)
I lived in the Washington Metropolitan area once in grade school, in the summers during college, and during four years of law school (I worked full-time and did school part-time). In the years I’ve lived in Chicago, I’ve been back many many times and I have to say, this was easily one of the best times I’ve spent in DC in the last ten years (right up there with last year’s bowling alley trip). On the other hand, it was really nice to get home and get out of the car. I carpooled all week to my meeting and used the Metro for my freetime, but Saturday was a lot of driving. Which is my ham-handed segue into this post at Steven Can Plan: Do People Really Know the Cost of Driving?
