Sister's tales from the big march

Hated it. Not cause she loves DJT, still hates him.

Small town, rural gal. Lives in a town of 35k owns horses (not a city person).

Couldn't hear or see anything, she's about 5'4''. Crowd really bothered her.

She couldn't figure metro out. You have to understand she's never seen or been on a subway. She has never lived anyplace that has mass transit.

Finally, used Uber down and back cost her $112. She left after an hour. She really hated the large crowd.

Live and learn, I guess

2. I hate that. DC is a cool place.

Once you figure out the metro, it's easy. I never could figure out NYC's subway system, so I understand. .

3. Yeah, the Metro is stupid simple

We're considering a spring trip down. I've always wanted to stay at the Watergate, and now that it's reopened it seems like the thing to do.

4. Another Metro Supporter here

I live in a rural area and have to drive everywhere.

A few years ago, I took 2 of the grandkids on a "History" road trip East to see Colonial Williamsburg, Gettysburg and DC.

In DC we found the people that run the Metro to be very friendly and helpful to the point of stopping what they were doing, walking us over and showing us how to get the right tickets from the machine and save about $5 per person by buying the right kind of "off rush" pass for our touring.

After that first day it was a piece of cake and fun to use.

5. That's how it was with us.

My husband laughs and says I never meet a stranger, and it's true. If I don't know, I will ask. I'm from the country in Alabama.....I have found that when you ask, and they know you are "not from around here," people are so gracious and helpful. We didn't need help in DC, but we did in NYC, and people were so friendly to us. I enjoy taking the subway.
