I am absolutely star struck! I saw the President of the United States up close – for the first time in my life. I lived in DC for nearly 5 years, and never saw anyone important.
I had just crossed the street from the Navy Yard metro stop to the US Department of Transportation building and heard the sirens. Sure enough, here comes the motorcade from around the next corner. President Obama’s window was down, and he waved. We heard from the locals at Starbucks that he had just eaten at his favorite DC burger joint.
It was a great way to end a good week working in DC.
I was in the Old Executive Office Building – next to the White House – earlier in the day, but didn’t see anyone of note there. At least…anyone that I recognized.
I had lots of noteworthy experiences in DC during this one (short) week.
