After having lived in NYC for 10 years, I landed in Washington DC, which was not my idea of a creatively inspiring place in 1989! Living in Georgetown and getting to know Washington has been a real surprise and delight!
We are the most giving city, to causes, of any city in the country per capita. We are a true destination for international visitors and ex pats. We are home to some of the best cultural and historic venues in the world and finally our food and fashion offerings are exciting and vast! Check out some of my faves:
