Reading Kiplinger’s tourists’ account of Washington I couldn’t help but empathize for their situation, as we have already spent over two months in Washington and have grown accustomed to life here. Although I did not visit those sights on a tour, during the semester I have gradually seen and visited all of the core sights of this city. We have experienced a semester absorbed in American politics, continually focusing on government. Whether through our internships, sightseeing trips, or discussions, we have all personally lived an abstract form of this piece. And that is DC.
