So here I am, back in America. I landed at Dulles Airport yesterday morning. I’m really happy to be back in Washington D.C. — much happier than I expected to be. I’d forgotten how much I like it here.

I’m staying with my friends Bob and Tim in their lovely apartment in Shaw. I didn’t know much about Shaw, which is in the Northwest quadrant of D.C. near Howard University, before this trip. It’s a beautiful part of town with an interesting history. Hopefully I’ll tell you more about it in a future post but at the moment I’m too tired.

Last night we had dinner at a Mexican restaurant nearby. (Again, I’ll definitely have more to say about that in a future post.) I snapped a few pictures of the neighborhood during our walk back home.

Since I recently wrote a post about Joburg at night, I thought it would be nice to share some photos of D.C. at night. Enjoy.

Bob at home

Bob, one of my dearest D.C. friends, on the steps of his building in Shaw. Bob is a part-time tour guide and his passion for D.C. is similar to my passion for Joburg. He writes a great blog called Historic District.

That’s all for now. I’ll share more once I’ve stored up some energy.
