I’ve been lucky enough to live in DC for several decades. I walk every day and would love for you to join me. We’ll find a few surprises along the way & snap some photos in the neighborhood. Teaching at Georgetown University is one of my passions. I can tell you all about the city, a different story altogether from the ones in the tour books or on the crowded buses. Let’s share coffee & a munchie, my treat. Bring your curiosity! I’ve got a few surprises for you along the way.
