Barack Obama's Inauguration, January 20, 2009

Walking down 18th Street

While on the train I talked to a group of three people who had driven in from Detroit. One of them (Tommy) was a database administrator for a non-profit there. I got off at Farragut North and walked to the National Mall with them before saying goodbye and heading off on my own. The walk to the mall was interesting in and of itself. the closer we got, the more people were walking and it was a sea of people from curb to curb, totally filling 18th street as far as you could see in either direction, all of us heading down to the mall.
