I did something yesterday that I haven't done in years. I took a walk around my NEIGHBORHOOD! You see, developers in the suburbs of DC didn't really think that a "community" or "sidewalks" were necessary. You take a walk there, you risk getting killed - by either cars or criminals.
Well yesterday, I took a little walk in the lovely weather (80 degrees!) to explore nearby streets around my new home. People were out watering flowers, riding bikes, playing with dogs. I saw maybe 2 cars go by. Birds were chirping. It was really nice.
