The photo is from the previous visit to Washington, D.C. in July 2009. We were there to submit the papers for out Russian passports. This weekend I went to Washington D.C. again to collect my passport at the Embassy. Yes it is this sloow. It is truly the Russian way of doing official business. But I finally have it and will (hopefully) leave for Russia in 10 days to see my relatives and friends -- first time in 8 years.
Shoot some Tri-X rolls in the streets, it was fun and the weather was good and sunny.
Word on food: for the sushi I recommend a small sushi bar in the Union station (#124 located at the first level). Not the best sushi I tried in my life and they have no hot tea, but the sushi are fresh and tasty and very cheap:
