I remember when I was there in 1995 we took taxis for about two days and then started riding this rail system under the city, a lot cheaper and fun to ride. We took it to the Navy yard, but the line did not go out that far and we ended up walking a few blocks in the middle of no man land. (Spooky) The next time we went out to the Navy Yard for the big deal we rode in the back Manny Pena truck. He just went right through the front gate, crazy times back then. They just wave us on in. :0)
That time in 1995 the hotel was about a block from the train station which me and this old army guy travel in on.
Drove to Washington in 1987 for a POW/MIA parade with two army friend, goodness what a fun trip that was I ask Charles how much farther we had to go on the map and he said about two inches. (This is an combat Army Captain.) LOL
Fun times, can not wait to go again,
