Fish on a Bike
Saturday was a big day for me. A dream of mine was starting to take fruitation. I have had this desire to be a registered tour guide and today was my day to test this out. I met up with the group at Union Station for lunch before boarding a bus that would take us all around the city and I was the one leading the way. AH!!!!!! I was so scared because some of the places that they wanted us to drive through I had never been to before so I had no idea what to expect.
Well let me just say, it didn't go so well. The girls were sleeping or talking to each other and really had no desire to engage in conversation with me at all. The places we went to, while fun to walk around to eat and shop, are relatively boring to see from a bus. I mean really who wants to just look at RFK stadium or drive through Eastern Market, Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, U Street and Columbia Heights? These were mostly neighborhoods and lets face it one row of houses pretty much looks like the next so I really didn't have much to work with here. Because we were going to so many places we ran out of time to even see the monuments which are my most comfortable area as I have given tours here many times before.
