First day in DC was warm, sunny and quite amazing. Our hotel is really well situated for seeing all the National Monuments, but not so good for going out at night. There are no restaurants nearby and when we walked down to the Potomac River on dusk we didn't really feel all that safe. Actually there was a really big outdoor seafood market going on - I've never seen so many crabs, prawns and all sorts of fish just straight off the boats. We asked a woman for some directions and she indicated that it was not a great place for us to be walking around at night - make sure you look purposeful and don't pull out your map!

Tarsnake's son once described him as 'grim looking' most of the time.
