My friend Klaus and I really enjoyed our stay in this wonderful home-away-from-home. Mornings usually began on the beautiful roof deck with its great views of Washington, DC. After several cups of coffee and a copy of the “Washington Post,” it was on to some serious sightseeing without the bother of a car (the Metro station was a comfortable walk over Calvert Street to Connecticut Avenue).
But as interesting as the rest of Washington is--and it’s truly a fascinating city--it was a treat to be able to come home to that amazing apartment with all its amenities...the perfect place to return to after a hard day doing “the tourist thing.” A welcome oasis after all the hustle and bustle of the big city. The deck was still sunny and enjoyable at the end of the day; what a great place for a late afternoon glass of wine, enjoying the beautiful “knockout roses” and listening to the fish splashing around in the pond! And then it was SUPPERTIME. We cooked in one evening but decided to eat out for the rest of our stay. And that turned out to be a very good decision. That part of Adams Morgan is a particularly interesting neighborhood. Eighteenth Street and Columbia Road offer an almost unbelievable variety of good eateries for all budgets. Want to splurge? You can, and we did. Want to pinch pennies? You can, and we did that, too.
Anyhow, thanks, Suzanne, for sharing your charming home. Can’t wait to return there for another stay in Paradise!
