Rural Visitors, Urban Hiking

My old friends Jason and August (who has more walking endurance than most other pregnant women) came to visit me over the 4th of July weekend. They are from Western Pennsylvania; where my family is from. Reed works on railroad car components. One of the things he wanted to scratch off his "To Do" list first--ride the subway. He said his company has shipped parts to our very own Metro Rail in the past. And what did we do at the Smithsonian--looked at old railroad stuff. Reed said, "I'm going to go back to work (at the rail facility) on Tuesday and when they ask me what I did in Washington I'll say, 'Looked at rail cars!'" He also noticed that Washington had a lot of Subways. No. Not the Metro. The sandwich shops.
