the snap-shot uploaded is with the young lady whom i visited in Wash. DC in the Fall of 2011, is my daughter, living there, yet due to her tight living arrangement, was unable to accommodate my lodging needs. there were various options, however having lived overseas in recent years and being spoiled by all sorts of jovial b&b hospitality, i've learned to eschew the conventional forms of lodging. i cherish the personal interaction and generosity of people, who are willing to open their homes to experienced globe trotters. so far i have not been disappointed.
life motto?? a chines proverb: "desire what you already have"
