Watching the Obama helicopter depart the inauguration.
It’s been something to see inauguration- and march-goers come and go from the Airbnbs scattered around the neighborhood. All kinds of signs carried down the block — and a huge New Mexico flag. Salt trucks blocking the road up to Union Station before Trump’s inauguration-eve dinner there. Big hair and black Suburbans waiting for each other. John Elway’s taxicab video taking place a few streets over. Lots of sirens passing by our place when other roads across the Hill are closed off. Signs quoting Martin Luther King Jr. popping up in many neighbors’ yards.
