One in a Million
Yes, I’m one in a million, in more ways then one. There are over a million people living in the county I live in. That number can be overwhelming and some days the traffic can be BUT the pros so out weigh the cons. Just about any thing that interests you can be found here. There are people living here who represent all corners of the globe. They bring their customs and beliefs. There are people here of just about every religion, political party, and philosophy. If you are willing to ask around you can find almost anything here. The cultural centers, colleges and universities, restaurants, museums, parks, zoos, theme parks, historical sites, movie houses, performing arts theaters and concerts venues are everywhere. There is something for just about everyone you just need to be willing to look around to find what you are looking for.
Washington Monument is located in downtown on The Mall. This Egyptian style obelisk is just over 555’ tall and was completed in 1884 as a memorial to George Washington. Washington DC
